Chopin Digitized Works and Autographs
OCVE Online Chopin Variorum Edition
OCVE provides digital images of the manuscripts and first editions of select works by the Polish composer Fryderyk Chopin. Its principal aim is to facilitate and enhance comparative analysis of these primary sources, attaining a degree of flexibility beyond that of extant printed editions of Chopin’s music and indeed of any composer to date.
A modern Internet platform presenting all the available sources of the works of Fryderyk Chopin. Developed by Paweł Kamiński, editor of the National Edition, in co-operation with the editorial team of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute as part of the Digital Heritage programme. This application has been especially designed to enable browsing, analysing and comparing digitalized sources, offering instant access to commentaries on all the problematic places in the analysed fragment of the musical score. The system user is able to closely follow the editing process and make own decisions (e.g. related to the choice of variants) on the basis of the photocopied sources made available.
