    https://www.amazon.com/Chopin-Pogorelich/dp/B09LGVWS89 Op.48 No.1 and Op.62 No.2 have already been released. I have to say I didn't really enjoy Op.48 No.1 when I first heard it and didn't go back to it for a while. But I heard it again about a week later and now I can't stop listening to it...

    Hi everyone, I'm reading a book about Romanticism (Barzun, "Classic, Romantic and Modern"), and one of the points the author makes is that Romanticists were realists, in the sense that they were interested in facts, the multitude of particular truths about the world. So painters, for example...

    Anyone want to recommend their favorite Chopin: Nocturne in E Flat, Op. 9 No. 2? I've always enjoyed this recording, by Glover Gill, used for the film Waking Life. It's used as background music in the film, but it serves the soundtrack well, dividing it perfectly.

    (First post!) I'm a collector of soundtracks - original or not, but I do love original scores - and I think the most unique one I own is the Waking Life soundtrack, a sweeping and often fun tango score that accompanied Richard Linklater's animated film. Does anyone else enjoy this soundtrack...
  8. Identifying Classical Music
    I remember watching "The Secret Garden" (1987) when I was a few years old and I recently remembered really liking the music in it, but I couldn't remember exactly what the music was as an adult. I searched through various versions of "The Secret Garden" until I found the one with the music I...

    I often hear that Chopin's style was developed early and stayed the same throughout his life. Yet today I decided to revisit his works and realised he used counterpoint in certain late mazurkas, the Polonaise-Fantasie, and the fourth ballade. And the Berceuse seemed somewhat impressionistic...

    Of Chopin performances, I'm only familiarized with Cherkassky, Richter, Zimmerman, Arrau, Pires, Horowitz and Rubinstein. Of the ones mentioned above, I pretty much prefer Cherkassky, unpopular as it may be. I really enjoy his colouring and refined tone, also tempo and gestures are never...

    I’m still fairly new to classical in general and I recently discovered Chopin’s Mazurkas. I love listening to them and I’ve been archiving composers and my favorite pieces of them. The thing is, the opus numbers and Nos. of the pieces are confusing to me. It’ll say Mazurka No. 41 but also...

    Hello, I was wondering of Chopin made any piece(s) which weren't written for a piano but for an orchestra or another instrument. I can't find anything on Google or on other forums so I'm asking here :)
