The Function of Subconscious Stimulus in Chopin’s Creation of g Minor Ballade

Dengbin GAO


Chopin’s famous g Minor Ballade is not only affected by Mickiewicz’s narrative poem as other scholars claimed, the pain of subjugation and long-term sadness of being a guest in a foreign land Chopin himself suffered are also outer and inner motivations. The combination of Chopin’s personal experience, musical accomplishment and patriotic complex promotes his own subconscious activities, which lead to his inspiration and motion in creation.
