Bruno Monsaingeon – Fascination and Confidence
After his films about greats like Glenn Gould, Yehudi Menuhin, Sviatoslav Richter and many others, films in which he exposes the soul of those artists with great empathy, Bruno Monsaingeon himself is quasi a legend. In recent months, he has been putting the finishing touches to a film about Klaus Mäkelä, the new chief conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Eric Schoones from the German/Dutch magazine PIANIST had a conversation with him. Read more >>

Oh it's a song now! There's no greater crime in this world then calling a musical work that is clearly a piece, a song.

 Thanks allchopin,
 In the link you gave it is said that,
"Composed in 1846/47, published in 1847/48 , dedicated to Madame la Baronne Nathaniel de Rothschild, (BI:164) . This second waltz of Opus 64 is just as popular as No. 1, although here a yearning melancholy and sorrowful expression brings the piece on a deeper plane of emotion."
 In the first part of the Waltz, I feel that Composer  sobs hardly visible(especially like 3-4 measures..). I know Chopin's life story. May be my feelings are prejudice.  Nevertheless, these measures always gives pain to my heart:( Fortunately, the second and third part causes to forget that pain:)

 I so much like that Waltz...
