Biography

Frederic Chopin's Polish childhood

Polish-born Frederic Chopin (in Polish, Fryderyk Chopin) immigrated to Paris where he mingled with all the artistic spheres of the great French 19th century to become the emblem of the Romantic musician.

It was at that time, aged eight, that this angel of the piano composed his first Mazurkas and Polonaises. On leaving his country because of the revolution, he gave proof of his genius with his First Piano Concerto and the Etudes Op.10 dedicated to Franz Liszt who made an admirable interpreter.
