Notes and Editorial Reviews

The distant godfather to Chopin's famous 24 Preludes Op.28 is Johann Sebastian Bach, whereas the sources for the four Ballades are works by the Polish writer Mickiewicz. Yet in these two cycles Chopin also reveals himself as the 'poet in sound', venerated by Heinrich Heine, who tells stories all his own in the language of music - and who, in this case, pointed the way to the future with his transformations of both miniature and epic forms.
