As you look through the entries and listings of Chopin’s keyboard works on these pages, you may run into this funny “KK” designation, particularly in the early recitals. It stands for the Kobylanska Katalog, and it’s assigned to works by Chopin that don’t have opus numbers. It’s named after Polish musicologist (and former Curator of the Krystyna Kobylańska, who in 1979 authored Frédéric Chopin: Thematisch-bibliographisches Werkverzeichnis. It is in essence a complete (and definitive) thematic catalogue of all the works by the Polish piano master – not unlike what Ludwig Koechel did for Mozart in the 19th century.
Welcome to the Chopin Project!These pages are a gateway to the complete solo keyboard music of Fryderyk Chopin. The Chopin Project began as an ambitious live-concert-and-symposium series at the University of Michigan's acclaimed School of Music, Theatre & Dance with added support from CREES (The University of Michigan's Center for Russian & East European Studies) and the Copernicus Endowment. Now we intend for this site to be a global clearinghouse that will let fans, students, and scholars alike look up their favorite Chopin works, and discover more about them. So look for YOUR favorite Chopin pieces, discover new favorites, and share your thoughts with us!
