Chopin 2nd Ballade Sample

This was recorded this afternoon while it was 105 outside. It was not easy to turn off the AC while recording!


This is still very much in progress but you get some idea of a piece I will play on Sunday in Fort Worth.


Frederic Chopin wrote 4 Ballades. This is the most compact and is a bit treacherous to perform. Debussy was influenced by Chopin and Chopin had quite a rivalry with Franz Liszt.
