The 17 waltzes comprising this volume are among Chopin's most popular compositions. Composed over a period of 20 years (from 1827 to 1847), only eight waltzes were published during Chopin's lifetime. Many of the others were written as gifts for women with whom he was acquainted. This Practical Performing Edition is clearly spaced for ease in reading and contains a thematic index. Also included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label by internationally renowned artist Idil Biret. She has made more than 70 recordings and has received numerous awards including: Lily Boulanger Memorial, Boston; Harriet Cohen - Dinu Lipatti gold medal, London; Chevalier de l'Ordre du Merite, France; State Artist, Turkey and many others.
