Title: Recorded using a Zoom H2N mic on a Hailun 198 piano.
The Polonaise in C#m, Op. 26 - 1 was composed in 1836 and dedicated to J. Dessauer. It takes considerable technique and stamina to deliver a good performance. It opens with a fiery Allegro Appasionato, the primary theme preceded by descending octaves. The section climaxes with a series of virtuosic arpeggio figures which give way to a tender melody. This is then followed by a repetition of the theme. After this opening section there is a new theme introduced in the enharmonic D-flat major. This new theme is then developed and followed by a new left hand melody, which increases the tension until a repeat of the meno mosso. This polonaise is very diverse in textures, dynamics, and moods, and sometimes is considered one of the best polonaises by Chopin.
