Richard Ratliff, piano

The critic and poet Ludwig Rellstab wrote about Chopin’s first two books of Mazurkas in 1833: “In search of earsplitting dissonances, tortured transitions, piercing modulations, disgusting dislocations of the melody and rhythm, he is unremitting and—we would say—inexhaustible.” What is there in Chopin’s approach to these triple-meter Polish dances that makes them arresting, unsettling, inspiring—or even “tortured” and “piercing”? Richard Ratliff explores Chopin’s Mazurkas of the 1830s and 40s as they evolved into full-blown miniature dramas.
