      Frédéric Chopin
      4 Ballades · 4 Scherzi Bernd Glemser, piano

      The Four Ballades and their sister works, the Four Scherzos, gave Frédéric Chopin maximum freedom for formal development as well as much opportunity to suggest concealed meaning, which audiences were more than willing to argue about.
      In any event, Chopin’s works were not intended as pure aesthetic pleasantries. He composed the Scherzo No. 1 in the year of the 1830 Revolution, for example. Writing at this time, he said, “If I could, I would set all tones in motion that my uncontrolled, furious, tempestuous feelings inspire in me!”
      But this cycle also contains intimate and mild tones. Written between 1830 and 1842, there is musical meaning in all passages of pianistic virtuosity; this is what raises the Ballades and Scherzos far above the level of brilliant musical trickery.
      For the first time, Bernd Glemser performs solo works by Chopin on CD.
