Fantasy by Frederic Chopin
Normally you’d need 5 hands to play this piece, or you simply can be Frederic Chopin. Highly complex shuffling from octave to octave, reminiscent of that khalbali in the mind when we think about something really beautiful, a fantasy, an ideal scenario, we don’t know how it will happen, but just to think about it is so so beautiful!
Frederic Chopin was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era who wrote primarily for solo piano. His piano writing was technically demanding and expanded the limits of the instrument, his own performances were noted for their nuance and sensitivity.
I have been listening to Chopin since quite sometime, and his work has influenced a lot in my understanding of western classical music. In case you go on to explore more of his music, feel free to ping me, and we can have a nice conversation around it ❤ 🙂
This piece was composed in 1834, but like many of his writings, this was also published posthumously. He died at the age of 39.
🌈 A wonderful expression of ‘fantasy’, performed by Nikita Magaloff, written by Frederic Chopin.
PRO TIP: The best way to listen to Chopin is to really pause, sit back, and close your eyes. He’ll take you on a very personal flight. Very very intimate music. Try it 😉
