It's a bottomless pit of need...

Looking for the really big, noisy, blowsy waltzes along the lines of the Wedding Waltz from the Veil of Pierrette by Dohnanyi - stuff like that...

The research never ends ;-}

Try Sibelius' original piano version of Valse chevaleresque, Op.96c.

It's as butch as a waltz can get.

Try Tito Mattei's The Whirlwind (Tourbillon)with quite a few interesting ideas!

And not to forget Moszkowski! He has several very brilliant waltzes too.

Is there a piano transcription available? I seem to remember there was a thread on this, and nobody came up with one.

There's a transcription of it by Prokofiev himself in his op. 102 set of pieces transcribed from Cinderella, unless that is a different waltz.

Chevaleresque helps although I am going to have to beef it up a bit. Whirlwind is a polka. I have everything else mentioned. Really appreciate the help, thoughts and ideas... -- keep 'em coming!

I'm not sure if you have the Mattei I have. Mine is a waltz--not a polka. My copy is definitely a waltz--Grande Valse de Concert--and after a slow introduction 'con fuoco.' It's a lot of fun!

One of my very favorite waltzes is Emil von Sauer's concert version of Echo de Vienne.

The Vivacissimo section on pg.12, with the main theme in 3rds, 4ths, 5ths, 7ths, octaves, and 9ths running up and down the keyboard is really terrific.

Oleg Marshev's recording is excellent, but Ania Dorfmann really nailed the soul of the piece in the 1930s. Her recording is an edited version, unfortunately, and she played the easier Ossia.

I heard the Grand valse de concert, Op. 41 by Alexander Glazunov on the radio the other day. It might be big, noisy, and blowsy enough.

Some of my favorite Latin-American waltzes:

José Rolón's Valse Caprice, Op.14 is a Godowsky-like transcription of Juventino Rosas' Over the Waves.

Lecuona's Valses Fantasticos No.6, Vals Maravilloso, and No.7, Vals Brillante are short but awfully nice.

His Aragón (Vals España) and Aragonesa are two great waltzes.

Ricardo Castro's Vals Capricho is another nice one.

Well, I'm not sure how useful this advice might be, and I hesitate to offer advice to a professional player, but Richard Rogers wrote some great waltzes and Stephen Hough has written complex and wonderful transcriptions of The Carousel Waltz , My Favorite Things, and Hello, Young Lovers.

These three, along with March of The Siamese Children are in a book titled "Rogers & Hammerstein Transcriptions " published by www.josef-weinberger.co.uk The ISMN number is ISMN M-57005-029-1 .

Young Lovers is quite short, and My Favorite Things isn't really one of MY favorite things, but Carousel might qualify.

Hough recorded his Carousel and Young Lovers on Hyperion 'Stephen Hough's New Piano Album" (CDA67043)
http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/details/67043.asp

The other two were recorded earlier on "The Piano Album" - Virgin Classics VBD 5 61498 2, [a 2CD set.]

DivaDeb, if Lynn DOES consent to give you the PMS lessons, can I please sit in? My gf tells me I'm in need of some SERIOUS coaching in reading HER'S and I usually try to stay 70 or 80 miles away during those times anyway, so I might as well drive into KC for the classes.
