5 On Friday – Chopin Around

The 5 On Friday meme was invented by our friend Travis of Trav’s Thoughts. To participate, simply sign in on his web page, visit the other bloggers taking part, and share your five choices for the week.

This week a friend reminded me just how much I love the music of Frederic Chopin. Nice Wiki link if you would like to read about this master of the romantic period. These are pretty long, but well worth the listen.

CHOPIN – Scherzo n°2 in Sibm Op 31 – Piano: Arthur Rubinstein

Vladimir Horowitz – Chopin Polonaise in A-flat major, Op. 53 (popular song version: Till The End of Time)

The Five Browns (The group in the picture at the top) – Nocturne 13 in C Minor

Chopin Trio in G Minor Op.8-3, Yo-Yo Ma

Chopin Piano Trio, Op.8 1st Movement: Allegro con Fuoco

    Fantastic.

    And if I may, how about a little Chopin ala Victor Borge? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfKqzN5MZYU

  2. Loved this set, Jamie! I seem to gravitate toward the darker Chopin pieces (shocking, I know…)
