Eyes To See

August 11, 2012

My first glimpse of the Promised Land from the hills of Moab was disappointing. “Did this look a lot different when the Israelites got here?” I asked our guide as we looked toward Jericho. I was expecting a dramatic contrast from the east side of the Jordan. “No,” she answered. “It has looked the same for thousands of years.”

I rephrased the question. “What did the Israelites see when they got here?” “The biggest oasis on the face of the whole earth,” she replied.

Then I understood. I had ridden across the barren desert in the luxury of an air-conditioned bus stocked with cold bottled water. To me, an oasis was nothing spectacular. The Israelites had spent years wandering in a hot, dry desert. To them, the sprawling patch of pale green in the hazy distance meant refreshing, life-sustaining water. They were parched; I was refreshed. They were exhausted; I was rested. They had spent 40 years getting there; I had spent 4 hours.

Like an oasis, God’s goodness is found in dry and difficult places. How often, I wonder, do we fail to see His goodness because our spiritual senses have been dulled by comfort. Sometimes God’s gifts are seen more clearly when we are tired and thirsty. May we always thirst for Him (Ps. 143:6).

Dear Lord, may our desire for You be like that of
a deer panting for cold, refreshing water. Please
don’t allow comfort or worldly success to keep us
from seeing You in every detail of our lives.
Jesus is the only fountain who can satisfy the thirsty soul.

Read: Joshua 3:1-11

I spread out my hands to You; my soul longs for You like a thirsty land. —Psalm 143:6
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 46-48

So far I’ve profiled the Brill Building composers, the British pop composers of the Sixties, and Brahms, among others. I seem to be stuck on the letter “B”. MS.BEHAVIN suggested I do something with the letter “C”, and she suggested Frederic Chopin. For those of you in Rio Linda, his last name is pronounced “SHO-pan”. Good news: Most of these pieces are short, with only a few large and multi-movement works, so the attention span required won’t be as great. But there is still plenty of great music in which to wallow. This week I’ll concentrate on Chopin’s Years in Poland.

Fred was born in 1810 in a Warsaw suburb to a French father and a Polish mother. The family had musical talent, but Fred was in a whole other league. In 1817, at the age of 7, he wrote his first piece. There is a bit of the Chopin we later come to know and admire, but also a bit of Mozart, Beethoven, Hummel and Field in this miniature. Pretty impressive for a kid.

Chopin: Polonaise in G minor

Having written one polonaise at age 7, Fred wrote another. Again, it’s not deep, but it’s astonishing that a child could produce this.

Chopin: Polonaise in B-flat

By the time he was 11, Fred played before Tsar Alexander of Russia who was in town to open the Polish Parliament. A year later in 1822 he wrote this little polonaise, which is a quantum leap from his two earlier pieces. Listen to the piano pyrotechnics! How many 12 year olds could play this, much less compose this? There is a lot of the mature Chopin in this little piece.

Chopin, Polonaise in G# minor

At the age of 13, Frederic Chopin enrolled at the Warsaw Lyceum. At 15 he wrote the first piece he felt was good enough to publish. In addition to the aforementioned influences, there is a hint of Rossini to this piece.

Chopin: Rondo in C minor, Op. 1

Another piece from 1825 was this polonaise, which Fred decided not to publish. Near death at age 39, he asked that his unpublished works be destroyed, but many of them were published with high opus numbers. Some great pieces would have been lost had his instructions been honored.

Chopin: Polonaise in D minor, Op. 71/1

In 1826, at age 16, Frederic Chopin entered the Warsaw Conservatory, an adjunct to the University of Warsaw. There he met Josef Elsner, the rare music professor who could not only recognize great talent when it appeared, but knew enough to stay out if its way. His first year at college produced another piece that Fred thought worthy of publication. The pianist in this piece is my friend Adam Neiman, a fellow Ayn Rand fan, whom I consult for fingering in certain pieces.

Chopin: Rondo a la mazurka in F, Op. 5

Fred didn’t see fit to publish these three Scottish dances, but they are charming nonetheless.

Chopin: Three Scottish Dances (D, G, D-flat), Op. 72/3,4,5

Another piece that Fred chose not to publish was these variations. Every composer worth his salt can write variations, and this was the period of his life, his college years, where he wrote entire sets of variations. This one is charming, and Chopin gets to strut his stuff. There is a lot of Rossini in this piece.

Remember from our work with Brahms the rule for writing variations: The harmony supporting the melody must remain constant, but everything else in permitted to vary.

Chopin: Introduction & Variations on a German Song in E

Talk about Rossini! It was hard to avoid his operas. They had conquered the opera houses of Europe and chased Handel’s operas right out of the repertory. It was also time for Fred to learn how to write for other instruments, like the flute. This exercise is a lot of fun for both the pianist and the flutist.

Chopin: Variations on a Theme of Rossini in E for Piano and Flute

In 1827, at age 17, Frederick Chopin decided to try his hand at a piece for piano and orchestra. Unfortunately, he never really got the hang of composing for orchestra. He tended to write in block chords, the way one would write for piano, and his orchestrations reduce to piano accompaniment quite easily. Still, he can produce a fine moment with the orchestra.

This is one the best known tunes in all opera, and Fred gave Mozart a real workout. He felt it was good enough to publish, and it’s performed quite a bit today. This is a grand concerto-like piece that runs 20 minutes, and it’s Chopin showing off what he has learned at college. This was the piece that put Fred on the map, for it came to the attention of Robert Schumann in his early years as a music critic.

Chopin: Variations on ”La ci darem la mano” from Mozart’s ”Don Giovanni” in B-flat for Piano & Orchestra, Op. 2

Among the other works at age 17 are a number of short piano pieces that were published after the death of Frederick Chopin. This little mazurka is played by the greatest pianist of the 20th Century, Sergei Rachmaninov. Forgive the sound quality; it was recorded back in the 1920's.

Chopin: Mazurka in A minor, Op. 68/2

This is the first nocturne composed by Chopin, and he decided not to publish it. But it’s still one of his little gems. The pianist is the second greatest pianist of the 20th Century, Arthur Rubinstein, who spent his life as the world’s leading exponent of Chopin. His autobiography is deliciously scandalous; he knew everybody and bedded most of the women in the business. As a teenage pianist, he was my hero.

Chopin: Nocturne in E minor, Op. 72/1
