Waltz in A-flat Major Op. 69, No. 1 (L adieu Valse - The Farewell Waltz) was composed by Frederic Chopin. The recording is performed by Jeremiah Jones and is 3 minutes and 38 seconds in length.

This waltz was published posthumously (after Chopin had died). The Waltz is often called "The Farewell Waltz" (L'adieu Valse) because of its origins. The work was supposedly written as a farewell piece to Maria Wodzinska, to whom Chopin was once engaged. However, because her father refused to allow her to be married to an impoverished musician, the two never married. In my recording I try to bring out the melancholic feel that would surely accompany such a parting.

This recording was made at my home on my studio upright. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Chopin's famous "Farewell" Waltz in A-flat Major.
