In 1836 Chopin introduced the term ballad into piano music with the publicatio n of his Ballad op. 23, although up to then it had only been used in literatur e and in vocal music. Indeed, all four of Chopin's ballads have the character of a dramatic story: the musical thread is spun with increasing tension throug hout the work, reaching a powerful climax at the end. Following the Preludes, we have now thoroughly re-evaluated this edition and revised it to include the latest scholarly findings. The most significant ones are documented in the pr inted critical apparatus; the detailed version can be downloaded from the Inte rnet.
