Richard Wagner's Polonaise for Piano, edited by Arthur D. Walker.

Editorial note:

This Polonaise and Trio in D major for Piano solo was probably written as an excercise when Wagner was studying under Theodor Weinlig in 1830.

Wagner described to Edward Dannreuther much later in his life the teaching methods of Weinlig (Grove I, iv, 347; Musical Times, January 1973, Page 26) The pencil corrections on the autograph, part of which is reproduced in the above-mentioned issue of The Musical Times, may be in Weinlig's hand. The Polonaise was rejected by Wagner, the Trio transformed into a Piano duet, and a new Polonaise for Piano duet was composed.
