Polonaise in A flat major, KKIVa/2
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Written in April 1821 and dedicated to Chopin’s music master Wojciech Zywny, Polonaise No 13 in A flat major was first printed in 1902. Delicate, ornamental, an aspiring trialogue between harmony, phrase and melody, not all its concern is with the common coinage of its place or period. The independently imagined D flat subdominant aside in bars 17 to 20, for instance, clearly looks to another time and environment. Paderewski’s editorial tempo (Animato) seems brisk, his dynamics fussy, for the simple grace of what Chopin offers us.
