A comprehensive look at the life and work of Fryderyk Chopin. Based on ten years of research and a vast…cache of primary sources located in archives in Warsaw, Paris, London, New York, and Washington, D.C., this is a corrective work intended to dispel the many myths and legends that continue to surround Chopin, and an intimate look into a dramatic life. Of particular focus are Chopin's childhood and youth in Poland, which are brought into line with the latest scholarly findings; his oftentimes troubled romantic life with George Sand, with whom he lived for nine years; and his untimely death at age thirty-nine, which inspired three thousand people to flock to the Madeleine Church in Paris for his funeral. 2018.
