The Thought of You (Praying with Chopin)

The Thought of You (Praying with Chopin)

Author: Frederic Chopin, Soren Kierkegaard Narrator: Josh Verbae Release Date: 01/01/2017

The Thought of You includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in E-flat Major, Op. 9 No. 2 — Andante performed by Anton Kingsbury. This is Chopin’s most famous nocturne dedicated to Marie Pleyel. This nocturne resembles the style of Field’s Nocturnes. The nocturne is reflective in mood until it suddenly becomes passionate near the end. The new concluding melody begins softly but then ascends to a high register and is played forcefully in octaves, eventually reaching the loudest part of the piece, marked fortissimo. After a trill-like passage, the excitement subsides; the nocturne ends calmly.

The irregularity of the rhythmic patterns is a distinctive feature of Chopin’s style of ornamentation that continues to find varied expression in all his nocturnal works. This piece is dedicated to Marie Pleyel, the wife of publisher and virtuoso pianist Camille Pleyel.

Make Us Worthy (Praying with Chopin)

Make Us Worthy (Praying with Chopin)

Author: Frederic Chopin Narrator: Josh Verbae Release Date: 01/01/2017

Make Us Worthy includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in G Minor, Op. 15 No. 3 — Lento. Chopin was inspired by Hamlet in composing of this nocturne. The key features of this piece strike with irregularity and unpredictability of the phrasing. It is wistful in its outer sections, with a hymn-like passage at its heart, marked religioso. Chopin attempted to enhance the purity of this passage through careful use the sustaining pedal. The expected return to the opening, however, is replaced by a new idea, also somewhat modal in character. This nocturne is dedicated to Ferdinand Hiller.

Author: Blaise Pascal, Frederic Chopin Narrator: Josh Verbae Release Date: 01/01/2017

The Little and the Great Things includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in G Major, Op. 37 No. 2 — Andantino. A nocturne painted with Chopin's most ethereal brush characterised by beautiful sensuousness, luscious, soft, rounded tones, and not without a certain degree of languor. Something of the warmer Mediterranean climate gently flows into the composer's pen here perhaps reflective on Chopin's stay on the island of Majorca. And example of Chopin's music acting as an aphrodisiac. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.

A prayer of William Penn (Praying with Chopin)

A prayer of William Penn (Praying with Chopin)

Author: Frederic Chopin, William Penn Narrator: Josh Verbae Release Date: 01/01/2017

A prayer of William Penn includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in C Minor, Op. 48 No. 1 — Lento. An example of progressive music in classical repertoire of Chopin's nocturnal collection. This composition intensifies not through ornamentation, but through a new textural background. Like the unfolding of a tale the middle section is still greater grief told in an agitated recitando; celestial harps come to bring one ray of hope, which is powerless in its endeavor to calm the wounded soul, which sends forth to heaven a cry of deepest anguish. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.

Chopin dedicated this nocturne to Jane Stirling, a devoted pupil. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.

I Offer It to You (Praying with Chopin)

I Offer It to You (Praying with Chopin)

Author: Charles De Foucauld, Frederic Chopin Narrator: Josh Verbae Release Date: 01/01/2017

I Offer It to You includes reading of the eponymous prayer followed by beautiful piano music based on original composition of Frederic Chopin. Piano composition includes: Nocturne in E Major, Op. 62 No. 2 — Lento. The uneasy start of this nocturne shatters the melody nervously before picking up the broken thread a moment later. The agitation soon subsides, however, giving way to the principal melody. This comes about in a wondrous and beautiful way. The melody returns with greater calm and poise than before the eruption of that inner storm. Chopin dedicated it to Mademoiselle R. de Konneritz. Performed by Anton Kingsbury.
