Weekly Classical Music Recommendation
I’ve been forgetting about this weekly post but I’ll get back onto it now! I’ve been revisiting old pieces that I was obsessed at one point. Not that I don’t like them anymore, they’re great still. By obsessed I meant listening to it on loop for a few hours. So I still listen to them now, just not on loop.
Here’s Chopin’s Ballade No. 4 in F minor. This is one of Chopin’s most favorite pieces, and it is both technical and lyrical / musical. Personally, I felt like there are a lot of characteristics packed in this piece: sweetness, sorrow, drama / climax, resolution, etc.
My favorite performance of this is below, by Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman.
