Synopsis
Focusing on Chopin, this book is one of a series, which sets famous composers within the context of the times in which they lived. Revolution, the Enlightenment, the rise of Fascism, the fashion of the times - all of these influenced them as they struggled to write their music. Frederic Chopin was born in 19th century Poland and his musical talent became obvious at an early age. He grew up to be an outstanding pianist and a brilliant composer for the piano, an instrument he understood uniquely well. His music is full of strong feeling and typical of the artistic era in which he lived, the age of the Romantics. Chopin lived much of his life in Paris, the capital of European music at the time. He lived at an exciting time when people were rising up in revolution and beginning to express themselves more freely. His music allowed pianists to show off their brilliance at the same time as expressing their deep feeling.
