Hi Monica,

I enjoyed hearing you play this waltz of Chopin again. I believe you've produced a fine recording of this music. There is an important thing to take into account here. Despite the Op. 70 cataloging, the fact is that this waltz was actually an early work that was published much later. Although effective, the composition was perhaps not quite as suave as many of Chopin's later waltzes. Given that, I think you found the potential of this waltz, gave it your best, and conveyed it very well to your listeners. Now that's providing a real service to a composer! :)

David

Thank you, David. To me this little waltz is similar to his op.69, no. 1 waltz. The composition of it anyway. Both are uncomplicated and with a pleasing melody and tone. I like both of them and again I'll say how glad I am that this one...the op. 70/3 was not destroyed. It's so charming and sweet!
