Frédéric Chopin at 25 (1835) by his fiancée Maria Wodzińska

Frédéric Chopin avoided writing for orchestra or voice and focused all his life on works for solo piano. But this orientation benefited his legacy because in his short period (1810-1849), he left us a whole catalog of masterpieces for the instrument which never ceased to be influential. Nevertheless, in his day a pianist was supposed to compose master pieces for orchestra for himself. Thus, before his twenties, Chopin wrote two piano concertos. Some say that the orchestral writing of these concertos is uninteresting, while others note that the simplicity of the orchestral support intentionally serves to emphasize the complexity of the solo. His Concerto in e-minor was well received when it premiered in Poland and later in France where a reviewer stated that “There is spirit in these melodies, there is fantasy in these passages, and everywhere there is originality.” Listen to it for yourself today at 2:00 p.m. for your midday masterpiece on CapRadio Music.
