Waltz in A Minor
By Frédéric Chopin / ed. Willard A. Palmer
Posthumous for the Piano
The posthumous A-minor waltz makes a fine first piece for a late intermediate student's introduction to Chopin and his style. The right hand's sweeping melodic phrases include ornamentation and varying rhythms against the left hand's steady quarter note "bass note, chord, chord" waltz pattern. This edition includes helpful footnotes and fingering suggestions.
