Sample text

His Theme I is more expressive than Ashkenazy's but less precious than Zimerman's and his middle section adopts a realistic tempo, avoiding the skittishness of Ashkenazy's interpretation and successfully integrating this section with the rest of the work. It is clear from these recent recordings that the individual characterisation of material now takes place within a much narrower range of possibilities. Nowhere do we find the rhythmic fluctuations and dynamic contrasts characteristic of the recording of No.

Ekier's stemmatic analyses, ingenious though their reasoning often appears, are at times inaccurate or incomplete and this resonates into later editorial choices. Nor can its elaborately scientific commentary conceal a subjective element in the selection of variants between, for example, autographs and first editions, given the frequent uncertainties about Chopin's participation in the correction of proofs. Ekier's claim to give 'the most thorough presentation of the authentic, unadulterated musical text of Chopin's works as the composer intended it' still hinges by and large on the privilege of final thoughts (by no means axiomatic in the editing of Chopin's music).

The very different editorial philosophies underlying Schonenberger and Richault continue to inform later nineteenth- and early twentieth-century editions. Tending towards the first approach are two heavily edited Russian editions, one (Stellowsky) of 1861, whose phrasing in particular bears little relation to Chopin's, and the other (Jurgenson) of 1873-6. This latter, edited 27 Chopin: The Four Ballades Example 9. Kistner edition: Second Ballade bars 104—8 (heavily, and with liberal additions to Chopin's expression and tempo markings) by the Liszt pupil Karl Klindworth, was well travelled and much used.
