Autumn Leaves – Waltz

This is my arrangement of “Autumn Leaves” in a Waltz style.

The song has an interesting history. The version we all know was written in 1945 as “Les Feuilles mortes” with music by Hungarian-French composer Joseph Kosma.

The song was derived from a ballet piece of music “Rendez-vous”, written by Roland Petit, which was partially borrowed from “Po√®me d’Octobre” by Jules Massenet.

A Simple Sentimental Moment

I wrote this piece around 2016 when I started to explore passing chords and delayed resolutions to dominant chords. I think it has a wistful quality to it.
