Waltz Op.121, No.1 by Ferdinando Carulli (1770-1841). This is a quintessential classical era piece with a nice melody and arpeggiated accompaniment. Make sure to phrase and shape the melody and have it come out more than the accompaniment and bass. From loudest to softest: melody – bass – accompaniment. YouTube Lesson Link
