CHOPIN WALTZ Op 64 No 2 in C# Minor
Here’s my work-in-progress rendition of this Chopin waltz. I recorded this version on the Clavinova, first with harp and strings, then with piano and strings, and finally with piano solo – the way Chopin had written it.
I did the former two because this waltz is part of the Chopiniana (Les Sylphides) ballet, where it is played with strings only. Let me know which version you like best.
I am not asking you to judge the quality of my playing because I have only worked on it for a few days. I would like your input about the instrumental combinations I used. Thanks.
Here’s also for comparison a Steinway recording of the first two themes of the waltz:
