The 19 waltzes comprising this volume are among Chopin's most popular compositions. Composed over a period of 20 years (from 1827-1847), 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.
This title has selections that range in difficulty from SMP Level 7-10.
