The posthumous A-minor waltz makes a fine first piece for a late intermediate student's introduction to Chopin and his style.

This edition includes helpful footnotes and fingering suggestions.

    This Waltz is very,very beautiful and quite wonderful to play.Chopin wrote it for one of his pupils. Together with the Waltz in C Minor Opus Posth. They make an interesting duo;and are a great pleasure to play. The wonderful thing about the music of Chopin,is that...

    he allows you to put a little of yourself into the music;and both of these Waltzes are well worth learning.

    This piece is a joy to play and the melody stays with you hours after you finish playing it. It is relatively easy to learn and is impressive to play for listeners.
