Chopin—Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23

Lecture no. 9 from the course: The 23 Greatest Solo Piano Works

Chopin—Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23

Taught by Professor Robert Greenberg | 47 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Music & Fine Art Courses

Chopin’s music for the piano was directly impacted by the evolution of the instrument itself. First, study two innovations in piano design that produced more powerful and resonant pianos, and grasp the symbiotic relationship between Chopin the pianist and Chopin the composer. Take apart the musical architecture of the G Minor Ballade, focusing on its unusual thematic structure, to see how Chopin creates a powerful dramatic poem with an emotional narrative that builds to an apotheosis-like conclusion.
