The fusion of narrative and lyric in the Ballades is perhaps Chopin’s greatest achievement: he realized in music one of the major ambitions of the Romantic poets and novelists. Chopin’s genius was, above all, to have conceived of imitating with an instrument not a particular novella, but the technique of a ballade narration. These Ballades are sung narrations, and throughout all of them Chopin retains a feeling for the continuous, uninterrupted flow of repetitive melody that he almost never employs in other large works like the scherzos and the polonaises.

For the interpretation of Chopin’s Ballades on hand the Italian pianist Alessandra Ammara picks up these melodies with great emotion and finds an elegant way to lead over to Chopin’s Fantaisie, Barcarolle and 4 Mazurkas, which will enchant the listener.

Look forward to a passionate and sentimental interpreted Chopin that additionally convinces through the special choice of the Steinway Piano.
