Extra Information Incorrectly attributed to Chopin as Valse mélancolique in F-sharp minor, A1/7. Re-published around 1930 and later in 1986 (by Stanislaw Dybowski on the bi-weekly "Ruch Muzyczny"). In 2012 I discovered, thru the Berlin Staatsbibliothek, that the piece had been indeed composed by Charles Mayer in 1861 (or before) in a more elaborated form. I couldn't find any reason why the Valse remained unnoticed and subsequently published in a shortened version under the name of Chopin. An article (in Italian) about this work can be found here and here. An English version of the article is here
