The Waltz in E minor is a waltz for solo piano by Frédéric Chopin. It was composed c. 1830 and published in 1868.

It was the first of Chopin's posthumously published waltzes not to be given a posthumous opus number. It appears in Brown's catalogue as B. 56, in Kobylańska's catalogue as KK IVa/15, and in Chomiński (pl)'s as P1/15. Although this is the final (fourteenth) waltz in the older editions of Chopin (other waltzes being included in more recent editions), this waltz was likely composed before any of the waltzes published in Chopin's lifetime.


This E minor waltz is in a rondo form added with an introduction and a coda, where the second episode is in a bright E major with temporary modulations to G-sharp minor.
