Oh, things happened in May…
Liszt/Chopin fan art… Intriguing…
Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23, was composed in 1835–36 during the composer’s early years in Paris and was dedicated to Monsieur le Baron de Stockhausen, the Hanoverian ambassador to France, and reportedly inspired by Adam Mickiewicz’s poem Konrad Wallenrod. Chopin seemed to have been fond of the piece; in a letter to Heinrich Dorn, Robert Schumann commented that, “I received a new Ballade from Chopin. It seems to be a work closest to his genius (although not the most ingenious) and I told him that I like it best of all his compositions. After quite a lengthy silence he replied with emphasis, ‘I am happy to hear this since I too like it most and hold it dearest.’”
I feel a deep attachment to Chopin’s Waltzes. They reflect the whole arc of his composing life, and they also reflect his split personality - between Polish and French - and his lifelong search for identity. I feel split in a similar way, between Japanese and German. Only in music do I feel completely at home.
