Related Reading: Chopin Waltzes
on: February 19, 2017, 02:45:39 PM
Hi all,
I'm doing a recital of four Chopin Waltzes for my A-level. I've got plenty of performers to listen to (Cortot, Lipatti, Rubinstein, Alice Sara Ott, Ingrid Fliter) and I'm looking for some relating listening/reading to do but finding it difficult. Could anyone point me to some writing from a renowned musician about the Waltzes and/or performance of them, or perhaps a podcast? Anything by a reliable source will do really, I've been struggling to find anything.

Thanks!

If you do an internet search for 'Chopin Waltz analysis', you will find references.  Did you want something else?

If you do a search for Chopin Waltz (XXX key or XXX op) you will find analysis for the individual ones you are playing.
