Notes & Reviews:

The four Ballades for piano, composed between 1835 and 1842, have a particular status in Chopin's production. As opposed to the "small forms" inspired by dances, they give birth to vast developments of a new, almost revolutionary genre bearing an epic breadth characteristic of the emergence of the Romantic Age. Like his friend Delacroix, who knew how to express the spirit of his times to be heroic in his paintings, Chopin here develops the aesthetic line of the musical story, rich with multiple sparkling colors. The piano Arthur Schoonderwoerd plays is an exact contemporary of the pieces executed and was miraculously conserved in its original state.
