Waltz in E major (Chopin)

Frédéric Chopin's Waltz in E major is one of his lesser known waltzes, discovered in his folder containing musical works that he did not want to be published.

It was written in c. 1830 and published in 1871/72. It was the second of Chopin's posthumously published waltzes not to be given a posthumous opus number. (The first was the Waltz in E minor.) It appears in Brown's catalogue as B. 44, in Kobylańska's catalogue as KK IVa/12, and in Chomiński's as P1/12.


7-part rondo form as follows:


where the A's are each in E major, the B's are each in G-sharp minor, and the C is in A major.
