Manuscript pages from Frédéric Chopin’s piano works in the composer’s hand:

  1. Notes and doodles by the composer (perhaps for his Variations on Mozart’s “La ci darem la Mano”). The doodle is apparently of Mozart and some sort of monument.
  2. Opening measures to Etude Op. 10, No. 3. Notice the original Vivace ma non troppo tempo indication.
  3. Opening to the Ballade No. 1 in G Minor, Op. 23.
  4. Section from the Nocturne in Db Major, Op. 27, No. 2.
  5. Section from Prelude in Bb Minor, Op. 28, No. 16
  6. Final measures of Ballade No. 2 in F Major, Op. 38.
  7. Possibly an autograph by the composer using measures from the Polonaise in Ab Major, Op. 53.
  8. Opening to the Sonata No. 3 in B Minor, Op. 58.
  9. Page from Waltz in Db Major, Op. 64, No. 1 (“Minute Waltz”).
  10. Mazurka in F Minor, Op. 68, No. 4 - the composer’s final composition.
THE DOODLE THOUGH

12 Piano notes made visible for the first time  Shannon Novak, a New Zealand-born fine artist, commissioned us to image 12 piano notes as inspiration for a series of 12 musical canvases. We decided to image the notes in video mode because when we observed the ‘A1’ note we discovered, surprisingly, that the energy envelope changes over time as the string’s harmonics mix in the piano’s wooden bridge. Instead of the envelope being fairly stable, as we had imagined, the harmonics actually cause the CymaGlyphs to be wonderfully dynamic. Our ears can easily detect the changes in the harmonics and the CymaScope now reveals them—probably a first in acoustic physics.

Omg 2nd movements are so pissing. You don’t get any credit nor sense of accomplishment for polishing it. T_T I think they’re the most difficult sonata movement and most underrated.
