Talk:Tioga Waltz (Foster, Stephen)

Does anyone know if this version was composed by Stephen Foster or was it posthumously arranged by another person? I did some research and found out that Foster composed the waltz at a very young age for four flutes, not for one piano.

Any comments would be nice.

Thank you.


This piece was Foster's first composition and he wrote it while attending, 1940-41, the Athens Academy in Athens, PA. I should know... I live here. We actually have one of the original copies of the Tioga in the church next to my piano teacher. I have also heard that it was originally written for four flutes but the copy in the church here is written for piano so possibly he arranged that himself.
