Ballades by : Frederic Chopin : Norbert Mullemann
In 1836 Chopin introduced the term “ballad” into piano music with the publication of his Ballad op. 23; although up to then it had only been used in literature and in vocal music. Indeed; all four of Chopin's ballads have the character of a dramatic story: the musical thread is spun with increasing tension throughout the work; reaching a powerful climax at the end. Following the “Préludes;” we have now thoroughly re-evaluated this edition and revised it to include the latest scholarly findings. The most significant ones are documented in the printed critical apparatus; the detailed version can be downloaded from the Internet.
