Minute Waltz for Brass Quintet


‘Valse du Petit Chien’ or ‘Waltz of the Little Dog’ was the name given to this piano piece by Chopin, however it quickly became known as the ‘Minute Waltz’. The reason behind this was that pianists followed a trend of playing the music very fast, with the aim of getting from start to finish in under one minute. While this may not be possible on brass instruments, this light hearted waltz is still enjoyable listening, even if it’s played a little slower!
