COMMENTARY: Chopin had a noble soul, he was a sincere patriot, a romantic dreamer in a body damaged healthwise. His personality reveals a delicate sensitivity, refined, gentle which in occasions he expounded in impulsive fits of exaltation which impress because of their obvious sincerity.
In his music a melancholy that can't be hidden slips out, many features of his life are symbols of romanticism: his air of mystery, his painful exile, his tormented inspiration, his refinement, even his early death because of tuberculosis are all romantic themes.
In my work, I want to represent one of the particular characteristics of his sound and his works: the Rubato. Chopin himself wrote about this: “The right hand can waver from the beat, but the accompanying hand must play firmly attached to it. We imagine a tree with its branches moved by the wind; the trunk is the inflexible metre, the leaves which move are the melodic inflections”. A romantic tree, prisoner of a tormented life caused by elevated aspirations which could never be reached, for physical sufferings which had no cure and for patriotic feelings which were cruelly flattened.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PAINTING: ROMANTIC. STUDY FOR PIANO OP.10 N0.3 BY CHOPIN


In my work dedicated to Chopin, I represent that “romantic tree”, as described by Chopin himself, making reference to the rubato; a tree where the trunk is the inflexible metre and the leaves of colour which move with the wind are the melodic inflections.
As you can see, in my painting I have connected the notes of the accompaniment, time for time, expressing the branches and the stems of the leaves. The lowest notes in reddish brown and carmine colours (bigger figures in the painting, each with an equivalent of a musical value of crotchet, and each one represents the trunk of a tree, the inflexible metre) divided into two parts to represent the first semi quaver (a quarter of the figure) of each time, they connect with the quaver (half of a figure in crotchet) which goes at counter time and with the first semi quaver of the *melodic accompaniment of semi quavers. The quaver of counter time followed by the semi quaver (smaller figures than the previous ones, with a lot more relief and orangey in the painting), are also connected to the melody of the semi quavers *(figures of little squares in the middle register, a lot smaller). The notes of the melody, as you can appreciate, are those which are loose in the upper part
The notes of the low register I represent in three different reliefs and colours: the lowest notes and with most relief are reddish brown in colour, on top of these are found notes carmine in colour and even higher are the notes of orangey colours. I have represented the leaves (notes of the melody and melodic accompaniment of semi quavers) of these “romantic trees”, of colours, notes of orange colours, pinks, reds and yellows, and with the most relief in the painting. The branches are pink and yellow in colour, and the stems have the same colours as the leaves.
All this is surrounded in the colours of the background, a grey colour in the deepest part of the painting, dirtied by some pinkish colours, which go from the clearest pink in the lower part, reaching a dark purple colour in the upper part of the painting.
I only now need mention to you the prison bars in the painting, with reddish and sienna colours, illuminated in the upper part and to the left. The prison of a tormented life from which this great musician and romantic dreamer could never escape.
