Chopin revolutionized the etude ?¹ but he ennobled the waltz. He spent much time on this genre throughout his life and created a wide spectrum of forms, from virtuosic showpieces ?¹ the Grandes Valses Brillantes ?¹ to deeply melancholic atmospheric pictures. All these works have one thing in common: one cannot and should not dance to them! This volume contains all of the waltzes that were published during Chopin?ãs lifetime, or posthumously, including popular masterpieces such as the so-called ?¶Minute Waltz?÷ (op. 64 no.1). In cases where two authentic versions of the same waltz have been transmitted, you will find the Urtext of both versions.
