Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 4

By Frederic Chopin

Detailed Description

Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 4 (Klaviersonate c-moll). Composed by Frederic Chopin (1810-1849). Edited by Sarah Gerbracht and Norbert Mullemann. For Piano. This edition: Urtext edition. Henle Music Folios. Softcover. 48 pages. G. Henle #HN942. Published by G. Henle (HL.51480942).

The early Piano Sonata op. 4 offers interesting insights into the young Chopin's compositional development. In all probability written during his student years at the Warsaw Conservatory and highly prized by Chopin himself, the nineteen-year-old composer presented the work to the publisher Tobias Haslinger on a visit to Vienna. But the publisher put off the still unknown composer. It was only when Chopin was at the height of his fame that Haslinger saw a possibility to do business - but this time it was Chopin who declined. Thus his first sonata was never published during his lifetime.
