    Hello everyone,
    I have recently recorded Chopin's Ballade No 3 & would like to share it with you. This Ballade differs from No 4. It reminds me more of a spring. The music draws its images in brighter colors so to speak, and it's less intense, less dramatic than No 4. Perhaps we can see it as if two stages of person's life are represented in these 2 Ballades.
    Thanks for listening.

    Vladimir

    As compared to No. 4 (I have just commented), this one is of less interest - not your fault, but Chopin's one !). But great Chopin nevertheless... Maybe your playing is a little too cautious; but it deserves respect, of course.
    Then, you can only complete the set of the 4 ballads now ! I'm putting this one up too. All the best,

    Definitely, both Ballades are great as all Chopin's music!!! Playing the other too... good idea; challenging task. Hopefully, one day :)
    Thanks for your response and comment,
    kind regards,

    Vladimir
