This delicate, haunting Waltz in another work that adds to the mystery and mastery of Chopin. This Waltz has long been a favorite of amateur pianists, as it’s one of the least difficult pieces of Chopin’s to play. Well, the NOTES may not be hard, but the FEELING? Rarely is this piece performed with such sensitivity, transparency and grace.

Hear Chopin Project pianist Christina Thayer Fox perform Chopin’s Waltz in A minor.

Now, for the mystery part: There is a lot of confusion over the title and date of this Waltz. It was published after Chopin’s death, and therefore carries no opus number (It is not to be confused with the Waltz in A Minor, Op. 34, No. 2). In fact, the most popular published score didn’t appear until 1955! So as a result it can be harder to track down recordings and scores….so we’ve done it for you!

  • Thank you for a most sensitive rendering of this treasure.

    Thanks soooooooo much for the sheet music!!!

  • so very beautifully performed…truly captures its taut portrayal of both the longing for romance, and the unshakable counter-reality of the inevitable: an unfulfilled desire.

  • I like chopin, I like the perform of panist Christina Thayer Fox.
