Funeral March (Marche Funebre) from Piano Sonata Op. 35 by : Frederic Chopin : Ewald Zimmermann
This most famous funeral march in music history is part of a piano sonata; the third movement of Chopin's op. 35 Sonata in B flat minor; in which – according to Robert Schumann – Chopin “brought together four of his most deranged children.” It was not long until the Funeral March – which was written two years before the sonata's other movements of the sonata – was removed from this context and performed as an independent piece. This is also how it was heard; in an orchestral version; at Chopin's own funeral in Paris on 30 October 1849. In addition to our edition of the complete op. 35 Piano Sonata (HN 289); we are offering this practical separate issueof the Funeral March in the proven Henle Urtext format.
