Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Romantic favoured autonomous pianistic genres midway between the aphoristic style of the prelude and the vast expanses of the sonata for fantasia. One of these was the ballade, the musical equivalent of the short story or novella. This recording sets the four Ballades of Chopin, a coherent but divisible entity, against the four 'Balladen' op.10 of Brahms, which form what might be described as a 'ballade sonata', composed in a single burst of creativity.
