Profundamente pájaro, / profundamente río, / profundamente cielo / y árboles y árboles
Frédéric Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 2. II Larghetto
Chopin confessed in a letter, that the second movement had been inspired by his secret passion for a younger singer at the Warsaw Conservatory, with whom he had fallen in love and dreamed of for six months without once speaking to her. This larghetto remained one of his favourites, and excited the admiration of Schumann and Liszt.
