Waltz in F sharp minor 'Valse mélancolique', KKIb/7

doubtful attribution

Chopin almost surely did not write the Valse mélancolique in F sharp minor, KKIb/7—but listeners can judge for themselves how well the forger imitated Chopin’s style.

from notes by Jeffrey Kallberg © 2011

Chopin n’écrivit certainement pas la Valse mélancolique en fa dièse mineur KKIb/7—mais les auditeurs apprécieront par eux-mêmes comme le faussaire imita bien son style.

Français: Hypérion

Man kann fast mit Sicherheit davon ausgehen, dass Chopin die Valse mélancolique in fis-Moll KKIb/7 nicht komponiert hat—doch können die Hörer selbst beurteilen, wie gut der Fälscher den Stil Chopins imitierte.
