This week’s free download is Chopin’s Ballade No. 4, performed by pianist Anna Fedorova. It is taken from the pianist’s recently album ‘Storyteller’, recorded on Channel Classics, which was awarded four stars for both performance and recording in the February issue of BBC Music Magazine.

Chopin wrote these four single-movement ballades over a decade-long period, and they are considered to be some of the most technically challenging pieces in the piano repertoire. This, the fourth, was dedicated to Baroness Rothschild, who had invited Chopin to play at her home where he was introduced to the great and the good of the world of aristocracy. 

‘The Ukrainian pianist unfolds the ballade spaciously and even suspensefully’, writes our reviewer John Allison. ‘Most pertinently, ‘poetic’ is the best description for all Fedorova’s playing’.
