Frédéric Chopin: Ballades (Henle Urtext Edition)

Books | Piano

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Frederic Chopin
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
In 1836 Chopin introduced the term "ballad" into piano music with the publication of his Ballad op. 23, although up to then it had only been used in literature and in vocal music.

Indeed, all four of Chopin's ballads have the character of a dramatic story: the musical thread is spun with increasing tension throughout the work, reaching a powerful climax at the end. This Henle Urtext edition has been revised to include the latest scholarly findings.

        These Henle Urtext editions are always very clearly printed and laid out well so that they are very easy to read. They also come with a useful introduction to the composer and piece.
