Chopin’s Polish Ballade: Op. 38 as Narrative of National Martyrdom

Chopin’s Polish Ballade: Op. 38 as Narrative of National Martyrdom

by Jonathan D. Bellman
Oxford University Press , October 2009

Chopin's Second Ballade, Op. 38 is frequently performed, yet remains very poorly understood – disagreement prevails on issues from its tonic and two-key structure to its posited relationship with the poems of the great Romantic bard Adam Mickiewicz. Chopin's Polish Ballade is a reexamination and close analysis of this famous work, revealing the Ballade as a piece with a powerful political story to tell.

Ingenious, entertaining, and convincing – Jonathan Bellman's book deftly demonstrates how the study of a single piece of music can open a new window onto an entire cultural world. – Kenneth Hamilton
