Ballade No. 1 – Frederic Chopin

10 06 2010

One of the juggernauts of not only Chopin’s works but of the Romantic/Baroque era.  Also, it’s hard to play.  I’m learning to play it and I’m stuck on the fifth or sixth page (out of 9?  I don’t even know!). It’s also the featured in the brilliant film The Pianist, where Adrian Brody’s character plays the piece in the abandoned house to the German solider at night.  Super awesome stuff.

Enjoy!
