Piano - Early Advanced
Composed by Jean Sibelius (1865-1957). Edited by Maurice Hinson. Masterworks; Piano Solo; Solo. Alfred Masterwork Edition. 20th Century; Masterwork; Romantic. Sheet. 8 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.3598).

Item Number: AP.3598

One of the most famous piano pieces by Sibelius, this waltz in G features contrasting moods and dark colors. Originally written as incidental program music for a drama written by the composer's brother-in-law, "Valse triste" was so popular that Sibelius arranged the piece for piano solo for the advanced pianist. This six-page piece begins slowly and quietly and builds gradually to a stormy stretto passage performed in a quicker tempo at the end.
