Music On The Move
Chopin : Scherzos : Henle Edition
Frederic Chopin's 4 Scherzi are pinnacles of romantic piano art, in which the composer fills genre traditions with radically new content. They strike a wild and demonic tone - barely a trace of "joke". Robert Schumann, for example, asked himself in relation to the First Scherzo, "How serious should dress, when even the 'joke' goes on in dark veils". After the Scherzi 1-4 appeared in revised single editions, G. Henle Verlag now presents the complete volume in paperback and linen; all four up-to-date works of Chopin research. Both the footnotes and the detailed critical report on the Internet provide detailed information on the well-known "Chopin variants" and all textual problems. Chopin at its best!
