Misc. Comments

There does not seem to really be a Grand Valse No.2 strictly speaking (though there are the earlier Ristori published in 1866 by Root & Cady- making this not, strictly speaking, Moelling's first Grand Valse unless it was composed earlier! - and the later unnumbered Grand Valse de Concert in D major - published by WF Shaw in 1880, and other waltzes by Moelling without "grand" in the title.)

Note- was wondering what "Ristori" in the name of the 1866 waltz meant- guessing it might be a reference to Adelaide Ristori (1822–1906), actress, not to the 17th-century composer who I just learned about (Giovanni Ristori).
