Ballade G minor op. 23 by Chopin

Getting in the mood of Chopin's Ballade G minor op. 23 by reading Konrad Wallenrod by A. Mickiewicz again. The mood of Ballade perfectly described here:

"But never did that hand in music's impulse 
Mere joyful tones from out the lute evoke ; 
And still it seemed his countenance did fear 
Innocent smiles, even as deadly sins. 
strings he strikes in turn, one string except — 
Except the string of mirth ; — the hearer shares 
feelings with him, — one excepted — hope ! "

Can't wait to perform this magic piece on Wednesday in Cieszyn, Saturday in Lørenskog and again on the 16th of March in Gliwice!

Music is a moral law.
It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind,
flight to the imagination, and charm, 
and gaiety to life and to everything.
