Sostenuto in E flat major 'Waltz', KKIVb/10

written into the autograph album of Émile Gaillard on 20 July 1840

About the authorship of the Sostenuto in E flat major, KKIVb/10, we can be certain: the sole source for the piece is a manuscript that Chopin entered into the autograph album of Émile Gaillard on 20 July 1840. The uncertainty here concerns the genre, which Chopin did not identify—but this charming album piece certainly fits well in the company of the authentic waltzes.

Nous pouvons être certains de la paternité du Sostenuto en mi bémol majeur KKIVb/10: l’unique source dont nous disposons est un manuscrit que Chopin inséra dans l’album autographe d’Émile Gaillard, le 20 juillet 1840. Ici, l’incertitude pèse sur le genre, que Chopin ne précisa pas, mais ce charmant morceau d’album va bien avec les valses authentiques.

Man kann davon ausgehen, dass das Sostenuto in Es-Dur, KKIVb/10 von Chopin stammt: die einzige Quelle des Stücks ist ein Manuskript, das Chopin am 20. Juli 1840 in ein Manuskript-Album von Émile Gaillard einfügte. Die Unsicherheit betrifft in diesem Fall das Genre, das Chopin nicht identifizierte—doch passt dieses charmante Albumstück trotzdem gut zu den authentischen Walzern.
