The much-anticipated addition to The National Edition series published by PWM, Waltzes (Series B) is the essential collection of Chopin's waltzes published posthumously under the direction of esteemed pianist and composer Jan Ekier of the Fryderyk Chopin Academy of Music. Includes Waltzes in E Major, B minor, Db Major, Ab Major, E minor, Gb Major, Ab Major, F minor, and A minor. Waltzes (Series B) comes with a meticulous source commentary (abridged) and a performance commentary, along with relevant correspondence about the pieces, including snippets from Chopin's own letters. The National Edition, founded in 1959, has but one goal: to provide the edition of Chopin's works as Chopin intended them, and, by so doing, to honor Poland's greatest composer. The National Edition is an ongoing research project, gathering together all available source materials and producing definitive publications. Ekier's team uses the latest techniques to assess the composer's intentions and relates this to modern pianos and performance. The National Edition is a source edition, a critical edition, and a practical edition, and the finest edition of Chopin's works available today.

  • July 15, 2013 best chopin version

    As expected, Polskie has published THE urtext edition of Chopin's posthumous Waltzes. Yes, it's annoying to have to purchase two editions, but the quality cannot be overstated. If you're a serious pianist, you must own this.

  • September 03, 2011 Second half of waltzes

    Jan Ekier has presented the most intelligent version of the second half of the Waltzes. (Numbers 1 - 8 are published in the Series A volume). We are all used to the old numbering 9 - 20, which turns out to be useless and misleading. Ekier lists the waltzes in chronological order...

    15, 10, 13, 16, 14, 11, 9, 12, 19. If you look up the background information, this is indeed the logical order. Number 18 is not a regular waltz, so it is included in the volume Rozne Utwory. Numbers 17 & 20 are spurious, despite eminent pianists having recorded them! As for the presentation, it is a marvel of clarity. I also love the fingering (Jan Ekier is a great pianist) while Chopin's own fingering is shown with a different font. I want an edition to help me play (so I'm not happy with the academic urtext editions without fingering other than Chopin's). All in all, this score is a treasure.
