Here's Melvin Wine's rendition of this popular waltz. I'm surprised he played it, as I've never taken it seriously. But this gives us an opportunity to analyze Wine's approach to waltzes, which includes lots of well-executed and tasteful double-stops, and a very loosey-goosey approach to rhythm (note the fermatas).
