An enchanting waltz by the unknown M V Rees-Newland. I originally thought British but in searching on the name came across the same name in USA and New Zealand ! The only M was a Mary from the States. Who knows ?

Think I saw a recording on-line............probably by Maestro Sear.

Indeed, I have had a hard copy of this piece for many years, probably bought in the music section of a long-since-closed second-hand bookshop here in the UK!

Hello,

Is there someone here who would like to share the Sir Hamilton Harty piano works

1) Irish fancies for piano solo
2) Idyll for pianoforte
3) Fantasia for two pianofortes
4) Irish variations for violin and orchestra (piano reduction)

Cheers and thanks

This year marks 75 years since Harty died, so I think his works can now be regarded as public domain.

Indeed, it is KV 8, a youth sonata for keyboard and violin. Composed in 1763 in Paris, at age 7. So you did buy a genuine Mozart!

Thank you, Kroket.
Indeed :

With this note :
The allegro was copied as solo keyboard version in Nannerl's notebook with note "November 23, 1763 in Paris." Published in Paris in April 1764 as Op 2 No. 1 with a dedication to the Comtesse de Tessé.
