Krystian Zimerman: Chopin Ballade No. 1

Krystian Zimerman performs Frédéric Chopin's Ballade No. 1 in G minor, opus 23. Chopin composed this piece in 1835–36 during his early years in Paris and, as Wikipedia puts it, "[he] dedicated it to Monsieur le Baron de Stockhausen, the Hanoverian ambassador to France, and reportedly inspired by Adam Mickiewicz's poem Konrad Wallenrod."
