This easy arrangement of Lehár’s famous Merry Widow Waltz in G major was put together for a children’s chamber music group. There is 3rd position in the violin part and chords in the piano part. It is slightly beyond beginner music, but it is only beginner shifting.
The Merry Widow, or Die lustige Witwe, is an operetta by Franz Lehár that premiered in 1905.
