Info on Chaconne - "This is a really excellent pastiche of French 'galant' 18th c style, and is written with a light touch unusual in 19th c piano music. As such the outer sections require little or no pedal. It was dedicated to one Mlle. Hélène Montane. ----------------------------" Who was Hélène Montané?

"This example is dependent largely on the tonic and subdominant minor for its key feeling." - The Affective Character of the Major and Minor Modes in Music, Kate Hevner, The American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 47, No. 1 (Jan., 1935), pp. 103-118
