“Sometimes, through the window which opens onto the garden, strands of melody waft upwards from Chopin, and mingle with the songs of nightingales and the fragrance of roses. He never stops working.”

This from Eugene Delacroix to a friend, (from Nohant, June 7, 1842), may only hint at the precision that belies what seems often from Chopin to be pure improvisation.

Listen now to Chopin Project pianist, Olga Kleiankina bring these contrasting sensibilities to the first of three Mazurkas from Opus 56.
