“Balance In B-Flat Minor”

Click on the image to enlarge Annah’s poem.

Annah Anti-Palindrome wrote this poem after listening to Chopin’s Sonata No.2, Op. 35 on repeat, following along with the sheet music, and pushing pause every 30 seconds in an attempt to capture the tonal essence of each section. Balance In B-Flat Minor (above), though slightly revised, is a visual record of this process.

We that ask readers to listen to contemporary Greek pianist Andreas Xenopoulos play the piece while reading the poem above.
