    It would be nice to have the dates on these. I’ve studied (and performed) all of them and the opus numbers seem to make sense but those numbers are not always dependable when referring to when the pieces were written.

    The cover notes from an old LP I have tell us that Ballade no 1 was composed between 1831 and 1835; no 2 between 1836 and 1839; no 3 in 1841-42; and no. 4 in 1842.
