Mozart’s harmonically bold C minor Fantasy looks ahead to Beethoven. Chopin is credited with inventing the Ballade – a musical form that went on to inspire Liszt and Brahms.
In the second half we hear Bach’s daring Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue, followed by Schumann’s fantastical suite of mercurial mood changes, Kreisleriana, which the composer dedicated to Chopin.
