Which finger?
Middle finger, I think.
In Bach we trust.

Perhaps Alfor could advise us. ;-)

Tbh, some of those glissandi are more tricky to play than expected,
because they double in speed half way down the scale.

Btw, Mozart wrote Minuets and Dances, not Waltzes, so anything
like this is unlikely to be by him, imo.

Well, it could have been written by Mozart under a different title, though. Sometimes, it is a transcription made by another arranger/composer.
Most young pianists have learnt the so-called "favourite waltz", which is a transcription of KV606 n°1, 6 Ländlerische Tänze.
And some publishers cast doubt :

(they are in fact German dances).
And this old catalogue proudly exhibits several waltzes !

Could one of the earlier score mentioning both "waltz" and "Mozart" be KV516f ?

Thank you JS for your thoughts on WAM and the Waltz.

Tbh, one has to look quite hard to find any links between them,
and K600 is almost always referred to as 6 German Dances. So why
UE used the word Waltzes in their piano score isn't entirely clear.

Two other works that mention the word Waltz as part of their
infrequently used alternative titles are the Phantasie für eine
Orgelwalze K608, and the Andante für eine Walze in eine kleine
Orgel K616, according to Köchel's Thematic Catalogue.
