Waltz, Op. 42 in A-flat Chopin Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
In many ways, Chopin's treatment of the waltz is akin to the way Baroque composers treated the court dances of their time. The layout of the music is simple, the music elegant and charming, but the waltzes are not intended to be great artistic statements. The Waltz in A-flat, Op. 42 is one of the composer's best in the genre. Its brilliant trill introduction leads into both musical rewards and some technical challenges. Robert Schumann described it as "a salon piece of the noblest kind."
