A Ballade is a type of musical composition commonly found in classical music. This genre typically has a narrative and poetic quality, often inspired by a theme or plot and developed through variation and counterpoint.
In music, ballades often exhibit rich emotions and expressiveness, and typically have a longer playing time and diverse structural forms - allowing for the exploration of complex themes and emotions.
In literature, a ballade is also a form of poetry created by the French poet Francois Victor Hugo.
