In his youth when still searching for his own personal style Debussy composed a series of short stand-alone piano pieces. He took traditional genres such as the ballade mazurka nocturne and waltz but in general used each ofthem just once as if trying them out. One such was the Valse romantique published by Choudens of Paris in 1891 and thus written at the same time as his famous piano works Two Arabesques and the Suite bergamasque. This charmingwaltz is of moderate difficulty and thus ideal either as a pedagogical piece or for concert performance. Our collected volume Debussy: Piano Pieces (HN 404) offers numerous other short piano pieces of modest difficulty for thosewho find that this practical stand-alone edition awakens in them a desire for more.
