Frédéric Chopin spent his fifth summer at George Sand#s country estate in Nohant in 1844. The time away from Paris gave the composer the necessary creative free space to produce the delicate Berceuse (lullaby) as well as the B minor sonata that year. The former is known for its dreamy, exquisite ambient sound # and yet it still numbers amongst Chopin#s most fabricated works. It was originally intended to have the somewhat sober title #Variantes#: a sketch shows how Chopin conceived these #Variantes#. The genesis and source situation are explored in this Henle revised edition that reflects the latest scholarly findings. A classic with a new look in the Henle catalogue.
