I have been playing Chopin's Valse Op 64 No 2 for some time. I just noticed the natural and sharp symbols before the F in the 2nd measure shown. Clearly both the F and G should be played as sharps in this measure. But the notation is confusing. Is it saying "disregard the double F sharp in the previous measure and play it as a single sharp"? Since the key is C# minor is this just a reminder to play F#?

Exactly.

The natural and sharp are just 'courtesy reminders' that this is a new bar, and therefore everything that was changed in the previous bar should be 'unchanged'.........

essentially yes. you know how there are courtesy sharps and flats sometimes? it's basically a courtesy "natural sharp" canceling out the double sharp from before.


My youtube channel where I discuss theory, performance, cover some tunes, etc.
