Camiel’s performance of Chopin’s 1st Ballade can now be found on Spotify! Schumann considered this work one of Chopin’s finest, and so did Chopin himself.
in structure it is one of his most refined works. It stands out as an epic story full of beauty and passion. Along with Chopin’s Ballade No.4, this is one of Camiel’s favorite works by Chopin.
