Analytical Sketches on Chopin: 4 Scherzos, 4 Ballades, Fantasia in F minor, Barcarole in F sharp major
The author's method of analytical sketch introduces the structural properties of selected evolutionary one-movement works by Fryderyk Chopin: 4 Scherzos, 4 Ballades, Fantasia in F minor Op. 49 and Barcarole in F sharp major Op. 60. Special attention was paid to the uniqueness of Chopin's creative concepts. In Scherzo No. 1 in B minor, Scherzo No. 2 in B flat minor, Ballade No. 2 in F major and in Scherzo No. 3 in C sharp minor these consist in a play of tensions between extreme expressive categories; in Ballade No. 1 in G minor - in changing emotions culminating in a dramatic ending, in Ballade No. 3 in A flat major and in Scherzo No. 4 in E major - in transformations of the material culminating in joyous elation; in Fantasia in F minor and in Ballade No. 4 in F minor - in the wealth of related thematic material, while in Barcarole in F sharp major - in the conciseness of motifs.
