Dr. James Johnson
Performers of all ages are drawn to the poetic essence of the Chopin waltzes and are challenged by their technical and stylistic demands. Of the nineteen waltzes, this treatise will address the two waltzes from the Op. 69. Along with the historical background, editions, analysis, and performing practice will be discussed. Two different recordings, those of Vladimir Ashkenazy and Artur Rubinstein, will be compared in this study.
