Ballade No.1 – Chopin
Piano played by Dr. Tony Karam
Each painting comes with a CD containing the full version of the music which inspired it.
Writing to a friend, Robert Schumann described this work as:
“the piece that shows most genius, and I told him (Chopin) I liked it the most of all his works”
One of the most compelling introductions in music weaves into an intricate melody, which is introduced in a minor tone and later on repeats in a major tone. The work intertwines the melody between the right and the left hands, and gradually builds momentum to reveal a muscular and demanding dexterity without losing the underlying subtle and simple theme.
A complex work that tickles the brain but at all times touches the heart.
We are a synergy between mind and heart
