Chopin: 4 Ballades; Nocturne, Op. 27 No. 1; Mazurka, Op. 17 No. 4

Frédéric François Chopin (1810–1849) was a Polish composer and pianist during the Romantic music era. A piano virtuoso, Chopin was uncomfortable performing before large audiences, preferring more intimate settings; his solo piano compositions are a reflection of this desire for intimacy—as well as illustrations of his pianistic agility and command of the keyboard. In this collection, pianist Ludwig Olshansky plays six Chopin compositions: four Ballades, “Mazurka in A Minor, (Op. 17, No. 4),” and “Nocturne in C Sharp Minor, (Op. 27, No. 1).”
