Ballade No. 1 in G Minor
Frederic Chopin
This noble and romantic work was begun in 1831 and completed in 1835 after Chopin moved to Paris.  Chopin, famously known as the poet of the piano, said of this piece “I too like it most and hold it dearest” of all his compositions.  

I have wanted to perform this piece for decades and have spent the past six weeks learning, memorizing and mastering it. I find the primary theme haunting and full of raw emotion.  May the listening bring you much joy.
