Waltz in A minor, Op. 34 No. 2Edit
This waltz is a sorrowful, slow waltz in A minor. Although it was the first to be written out of the three, the waltz was the second to be published. The Fryderyk Chopin Institute believes this piece was composed in 1831.
Waltz in F major, Op. 34 No. 3Edit
This waltz in F major was composed in 1838 and published in the same year.
