ANDANTE SPIANATO & POLONAISE BRILLANTE O Paperback
Part of the WIENER URTEXT series
for piano. The genesis of Chopins Polonaise brillante Op. 22 leads back to his youth in Warsaw and the years of his first trips as a virtuoso.
Designed as a concert piece with orchestra, it takes up a special position among the polonaise compositions of Chopin.
However, by tradition, the work has always been performed as an extremely effective solo piece.
Since no autograph has survived, the various first prints are used as sources.
Comparisons show that the English first edition must have been based on the autograph manuscript of Chopin.
The present new edition therefore rates this English edition more highly than usual.
