CLASSICAL OPUS no.10

Fryderyk Chopin – “Prelude in E Minor op.28 n.4”

フレデリック・ショパン  – 「プレリュードEマイナーop.28第4号」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 3 minutes

Taciturn melodicism clashes here with twilight melancholy of painfully burning absence.  As often in preludes, the metric structure is rhapsodic.  Abstract in intention, some of Chopin’s preludes were later contaminated by unintended associations with weather events.  And you don’t have to seek your roots on the muddy plains of Eastern Europe to hear the weeping willows’ squelching steps…

The second, monochromatic version, delivered here by Novi Singers, may, indeed, be apt for the depth of soggy winter.

A REFLECTION

I fall on the sand to wipe with my hair

My country’s blood-stained feet,

But I know her face and crown

Radiant like the sun of suns.
