Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante E Flat Major Op. 22 by : Frederic Chopin : Ewald Zimmermann
This rousing Poloniase; which is preceded by a nocturne-like Andante; was originally a work for piano and orchestra. It was written at the same time as Chopin's two piano concertos in E minor and F minor; and breathes the same fresh; youthful spirit. Since the orchestral part is subordinate and fulfills only an accompanying function; the Polonaise lends itself brilliantly to performance as a solo piano piece; and indeed is almost always performed as such in today's concert halls. In this spirit – and following the first editions – our Urtext edition is laid out not as a piano reduction (with two piano systems); but contains only the solo part; at those few passages where the solo piano rests; the orchestral accompaniment is reproduced in small print.
