Description:
Form: Ballade
Instrument: Piano
Period: Romantic
Performer: Jason Chiu
Title: The Ballade no. 1 in Gm, Op. 23, composed in 1831 during the composer's years in Vienna, was a reflection about his loneliness in the city far away from home, where a war was happening against the Russian Empire. Once finished, it wasn't published until his move to Paris, where he dedicated it to Baron Nathaniel von Stockhausen. A distinguishing feature of this Ballade is its time signature: while the other three are written in strict compound duple time with a 6/8 time signature, this one bears deviations from this. The introduction is written in 4/4 time, and the more extensive Presto con fuoco coda is written in 2/2. The rest of the piece is written in 6/4, rather than the 6/8 which characterizes the others. Ballade No. 1 is one of the more popular Chopin pieces. It is prominently featured in the 2002 Roman Polanski film The Pianist.
