Originally composed in 1865 for piano duet (one piano, four hands), Brahms's 16 Waltzes, Op. 39, are charming short pieces in the Viennese landler and waltz styles. Editor Henry Levine has included helpful fingering suggestions, pedaling indications in the secondo part, and phrasing that enhances the melodic line. For reading and playing convenience, these beautifully re-engraved waltzes are now available in an attractive upright edition, complete with a thematic index.
