Hello,

I was wondering if anyone can help me. It's a known fact that Chopin was forever a perfectionist and his autographs would often contrast, as he was constantly changing pieces he composed. Therefore no two autograph's of the same piece are ever the same! However, I recently came across this wonderful recording of Op.9 No.2:-
http://www.chopinproject.com/2009/06/02/nocturne-in-e-flat-op-9-no-2-wadditional-cadenzas/
Which is based upon a score of one of Chopin's students where Chopin himself had added extra embellishments and ornaments.

Also, in this Katsaris Masterclass:-
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KXHIJ3O-rw

Around the 11:23 mark he plays another melody on top of the girls playing. He goes onto say that it was an alternative melody that Chopin himself improvised once with one of his students, and that student wrote it down.

Are there anymore of these improvisations/alternative melodies around? Are there any editions of he works which include Ossai on these additional embellishments?

My experience with Chopin from what I've studied about him is not only was he always changing but often some of his performances were almost improvised in nature. My favorite quote of Chopin is "the line between composition and improvising is very thin" so Im not surprised. I haven't found any of these improvisations but I will look for them now
thanks for sharing smile
