Waltzes, Op. 34 (Chopin)
The three Waltzes, Op. 34, were composed by Frédéric Chopin from 1834 until 1838 and published in 1838.
Waltz in A-flat major, Op. 34 No. 1
Being among the longest of Chopin's waltzes, this waltz is in A-flat major. The piece is introduced with a fanfare before modulating to D-flat major for a dreamy middle section. The A-flat material is succeeded by a coda, which leads to the end of the piece.
Waltz in A minor, Op. 34 No. 2
This waltz is a sad, slow waltz in A minor. Although it was the first to be written out of the three, the waltz was the second to be published.
Waltz in F major, Op. 34 No. 3
This waltz in F major was composed in 1838 and published in the same year.
