'Most important, the editors used Chopin autographs as the primary source for the posthumously published waltzes and not the Fontana edition....The preface by Christoph Grabowski includes new information about the Waltzes....The music is notable for its inclusion of a composite version of Op. 64 No. 1 and the separate variants of several other waltzes.'--Clavier (March 2008)
