Descripción

The fundamental characteristics of Chopin's style–the loose-textured, wide-meshed chords and arpeggios, the serpentine movements, the bold leaps–are exaggerated in the works of this group, and in their exaggeration become grotesque, and not unfrequently ineffective. These works show us, indeed, the composer's style in a state of fermentation; it has still to pass through a clearing process, in which some of its elements will be secreted and others undergo a greater or less change.
