This chart was partially inspired by an interesting article on the subject that originally appeared in BBC Music Magazine, April 1997. Although Chopin is hailed today as the national composer of Poland, he was ethnically half-French, which explains why he had a French name. The furious, fast, technically complex parts intertwined with mellow, quiet parts...his amazing choral harmonization...

The Victorian conception of Chopin as a consumptive drawing-room balladeer of the kbd., a conception connived at by lesser pianists, has long been exposed as a false trail leading hearers away from the true, poetic, heroic Chopin. England, in short, became a welcoming host to foreign virtuosos, impresarios, singers and composers. His death certificate stated the cause as tuberculosis. Only recently have these differences gained greater recognition. [137] Chopin's last ( Pleyel ) piano, on which he composed in 1848–49.

Chopin opened it and grimaced with displeasure. "My dear fellow, you were smoking when you read it." While most of his other morsels are free-form and deeply personal in conception, the waltzes dwell within prescribed dance forms and their social function. Chances are good that if you’ve been to a concert during his tenure here, you’ve heard a Bruckner piece. After the Uprising, he lived in Paris as part of Poland 's Great Emigration.

I like Chopin's music, but I do not much care for Chopin's personal views. Two videos of people performing some of the composer’s music. A furious Prokoviev Toccata and a Liszt finale – the Sixth Hungarian Rhapsody – give a further demonstration of a technique of such thoroughbred robustness that no music seems to hold any fears for it.
