Please treat this recording not as a final product, but as a frozen moment in time from Henry Wood Hall in London: I take my cue from Chopin himself, who would never play a piece the same way twice. Chopin worked on this sonata in Majorca with George Sand, as his tuberculosis worsened.

The first movement reminds me of a painting that has many layers, represented by different registers on the keyboard that create various moods with the help of chromatic notes and.
The second movement is brilliantly elegant, while the slow movement is a gem of composition, with its minimalist descending patterns that create a state of trance.
The finale is based on a simple theme that repeats three times, but is interrupted with flares of scales burning like fire on the keyboard; I love the adrenaline rush it gives me. In Poland was partitioned between Russia, Prussia, and Austria, which effectively wiped Poland off the map.
This new puppet state structure replaced Napoleon's Duchy of Warsaw. The Poles had a fervent desire for national independence, but their attempt at liberation in failed, devastating Chopin. Genre-bending Despite being an excellent performer and improviser, Chopin did not care much about impressing audiences.
