Do poor Tom some charity, whom the foul fiend vexes!

One piece from 1841 by Frederic Chopin took the better part of a century before it caught on. According to Liszt, there is actually a program for this piece.

At the beginning, there is a procession of Fred’s friends to his piano where he is playing. George Sand comes in, gets her panties in a wad for some reason, quarrels, and crockery is thrown about, perhaps underhanded, Hillary-style. She marches out, then marches back in, begging for forgiveness.

There is a march passage at 5:23 that prompted a fine moment with pianist William Wolfram. At a fund raising party for the Seattle Chamber Music Society, Bill played this piece, and I noticed that he used the pedal for this passage. Afterward, while Bill was sipping single malt Scotch, I asked him about that.

”When I was learning the piece as a teenager, I tried pedal there, and my teacher gave me hell, pointing out that there was no pedal marking and that the notes were marked staccato. I pointed out that the passage doesn’t work unless you use pedal.”

“She was wrong, and you were right,” said Bill, “especially in a room with a thick carpet like that. It deadens the sound. When I rehearsed in that room without pedal, it didn’t work at all. Pedal is fine.”

It’s nice when the professionals back you up.

Chopin: Fantasy in F minor, Op. 49

One of the desk drawer pieces by Frederic Chopin from 1841 is this little gem that should have been published. It’s a sad, contemplative waltz.

Chopin: Waltz in F minor, Op. 70/2

Frederic Chopin turned 32 in 1842, and it was a year of fine music with a few masterpieces thrown in. It started with a trio of mazurkas.

Chopin: 3 Mazurkas (G, A-flat, C# minor), Op. 50

Frederic Chopin wrote an impromptu in 1842 that is one of his most enjoyable pieces, a perfect mix of the sunny and the contemplative.

That’s a very nice old ‘56, glad to see it so well loved. Old wagons didn’t have that many fans other than woodies until the past decade or so, but I’ve always loved them. My folks kept Country Squires of various vintages in the garage right up to my high school years.

Not sure if there’s a musical theme tonight, but I encountered a YouTube from Nelly Furtado that was striking, accoustic performance, very different from the “official” version that got a fair amount of airplay. Sort of dark, the lyrics, but beautiful. The lighting and stage reinforce that.

“Like A Bird”

In 1842 Frederic Chopin wrote his last ballade, which has just a taste of Schumann in it. It starts sweetly, but that’s just a facade. It turns dark, but thoughtful, and then Chopin writes a passage that sounds like a question being asked. The sun comes out in the middle, and the piece dances, repeating the opening passage in a different key. The darkness returns, while the piano sings operatically around the theme. It ends wildly as the chords of night fall.

Chopin: Ballade #4 in F minor, Op. 52

In 1842 Frederic Chopin wrote one of his best known pieces, turned into a popular song in 1944 titled “Til the End of Time”. The middle section contains some of his most difficult writing. Those repetitive octave combinations, intended to portray war drums, are hell on the wrist.

Chopin: Polonaise in A-flat, Op. 53 (“Heroic”)
