Chopin revolutionized the etude – but he ennobled the waltz. He spent much time on this genre throughout his life and created a wide spectrum of forms, from virtuosic showpieces – the Grandes Valses Brillantes – to deeply melancholic atmospheric pictures. All these works have one thing in common: one cannot and should not dance to them! Our volume contains all of the waltzes that were published during Chopin's lifetime, or posthumously, including popular masterpieces such as the so-called “Minute Waltz” (op. 64 no. 1). In cases where two authentic versions of the same waltz have been transmitted, we naturally give the Urtext of both versions.

  • January 21, 2009 A great buy

    I bought the Chopin Waltes for my father, and he is thrilled with them. He likes the versions that are chosen here, and the hard cover makes the book long-lasting. The only down-side is that you need to find a way to hold the book open as you...

    play. But this was a great buy, and I recommend it.
