Sanity Sunday- The Music of Frédéric Chopin

by Nomad

A bit of change of pace.
I thought I would offer you a sanity break this Sunday, featuring the music of Frédéric Chopin. 

Although his musical career was foreshortened by his early death at age 39, this Polish composer was considered a "poetic genius...without equal in his generation." As his Wikipedia bio reminds us:
Chopin's music, his status as one of music's earliest celebrities, his indirect association with political insurrection, his high-profile love-life, and his early death have made him a leading symbol of the Romantic era.
This selection is Prelude no.15 ‘Raindrop’, op.28, played on the piano by the Chinese concert pianist popularly known as Yundi.

Here's a playlist of other works by Chopin.

The playlist consists of:

  1.  Nocturne in C Sharp Minor
  2.  Waltz in E flat, Op. 18 no. 1
  3.  Waltz in B minor Op.69 no.2  
  4.  Waltz Op. 64 no 2
  5.  Nocturne for piano and violin
  6.  Ballade in G Minor, Op. 23 No.1
  7.  Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52
  8.  Study No. 13 in E-flat minor after Op. 10 No. 6
  9.  Nocturne in C# minor [Violin Solo] 

Have a wonderful Sunday, my friends.
