"As far as the Polonaise in E flat minor is concerned, with its engaging Trio in C flat major, written enharmonically in B major, I encountered the same trouble as with the Scherzo in B flat minor: Chopin wouldn't permit me to play it. You wouldn't get it right, he said laconically. Instead I managed to play the Polonaise in C sharp minor to his satisfaction." - Wilhelm von Lenz, Uebersichtliche Beurtheilung der Pianoforte - Compositionen von Chopin, Neue Berliner Musikzeitung, 18 Sep 1872

"There is one prelude which he conceived on a certain damp and gloomy evening and which plunges the spirit into a terrible despair. When I drew his attention to the sound of water which really did fall rhythmically onto the roof, he said he had not heard them. He was even angry that I was interpreting it as an expression of imitative harmony. His composition from that evening was full of raindrops, bouncing with an echo off the monastery's resonant roof-tiles, but in his imagination and melody, they became translated into tears falling from the sky onto his heart." - George Sand, Histoire de ma vie, Paris 1854

"I remember once when I was playing the 17th prelude of Chopin, Madame Dubois said that Chopin himself used to play that bass note A flat in the final section (in spite of playing everything else diminuendo) with great strength. He always struck that note in the same way and with the same strength, because of the meaning he attached to it. He accentuated that bass note, he proclaimed it, because the idea of that prelude is based on the sound of an old clock in the castle which strikes the eleventh hour. Chopin always insisted the bass note should be struck with the same strength, no diminuendo, because the clock knows no diminuendo." - Paderewski, M. Lawton, The Paderewski Memoirs, London 1939
