How many musical people out there know Chopin's "Minute Waltz"? When as a child we learned to play the piano, my twin brother and I thought that the waltz should be played in one minute!! True?? Not a bit of it!! This waltz was originally performed by a famous Polish pianist called Jan Paderewski, and though he played it like laldy, it took him just over two minutes to play the piece - so there! Perhaps the waltz should be re-titled "Chopin's Two Minute Waltz" - but it just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it??
