Notes on the cover:
The idea of the Sonata in B flat minor Op. 35 probably took its final shape during Chpin's trip to Majorca. He began the work on the Sonata when he was in Nohant for the first time. In August, 1839 the wholwe composition had already the form of a considerably developed sketch. In August, 1839 Chopin wrote to a friend (Julian Fontana) in Paris: ..."I am writing a Sonata in B flat minor including that march you already know. It has an Allegro, later a Scherzo in B flat minor, a march and short finale, perhaps my three pages, the unison left and right hand talk after the march..."

Chopin's Sonata in B flat minor is, perhaps, the most individual example of the romantic sonata. The excellent compactness of the first Allegro resembling the compactness of the Allegro from Beethoven's Quartet op No. 95, a composition well known to Chopin, the theme's transition into a cantilene - do not make today the impression of a break with the old tradition of sonata. Anthony Rubinstein heard in the finale "the wind whispering among the graves" which suits the impressionist , misty interpretation of this finale. Written without a literary program the finale with all its clarity may be played as a ghastly toccata. Chopin needed no program: his Sonata by itself affected the imagination of a number of generations.

In 1844 during the summer in Nohant Chopin worked on his Sonata in B minor Op. 58. The work was printed next year. The Allegro from his Sonata, of rich theme and broad construction, with its winning melodious digressions is in a sharp contrast with the allegro from yhe Sonata in B flat minor. The masterly Scherzo and Largo bearing traits of the most poetic nocturn precede the sparkling cavalcade of the finale. This Sonata was blamed for the excessive concerto-like difficulties of the performance, for the loose connection between the Sonata parts and the melodious episodes. But the work of unchanged freshness repels itself the scholarly reproaches and doctrinal blames.
