Description

Research sources say that the Piano Concertos Nr. 1 & 2 was actually meant for piano and string quartet. While it is not known for sure what Chopin's true intentions were, one can take the example of Mozart, who wanted to sell some of his concertos to the average pianist, who could take home the score and play it with a couple of friends. Did Chopin have similar intentions? Chopin There is another theory suggesting that Chopin's rehearsals with a quartet were for the string section to have a better understanding of their role as accompanists. However I am of the opinion that in all practical terms, a chamber version score would be the closest the ordinary pianist could get to playing the orchestral version. One stark difference from the orchestral version is the solo parts - now the pianist is not just a soloist but a partner to the quartet. From the onset of the usual tutti that starts the E minor concerto, the pianist comes in together with the quartet. Shiraga launches into the opening with exemplary fashion with the strength of a titan and never lets up all the way to the end. One pertinent observation in this "new" work is the fact that now the solo instruments represent a whole section. E.g. The viola starts of the second movement representing the whole string section in the original score. While there is no horn solo entry anymore the cello is an adequate replacement. This allows greater sensitivity to be portrayed as the cello is a "emotive" instrument, allowing one to reach the depths of the soul. I also find that the solo passages are further intensified. The string quartet brings more to the pathos of the various passages than normally achievable with the large orchestral string section. The Second Piano Concerto was written first in 1829. It is a dreamy and mournful F minor work which characteristically commences with a melodic figure that sinks into melancholy - this was probably Chopin's testimony of his adoring love for Konstanze Gladkowska. What is interesting in the chamber version is that due to the intimate sound of two instruments (violin and cello) starting the concerto, there seems to be that added sense of pathos, with the piano already playing in the background. Although I feel that the horns in the orchestral concerto have a better say than the same part played by the piano.
