Roman Polanski's successful film The Pianist has focused attention on the Chopin's Nocturne in C-Sharp Minor (Lento con gran espressione). Henle's edition presents the work in two versions. One derives from the handwritten copy which was owned by Chopin's sister Ludwika. The other is a noticeably different original version found in Chopin's original draft, now preserved in the Chopin Museum in Valldemosa (Mallorca). It is your turn to play the music from The Pianist.
