Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849)


My favorite composer for piano music is Frédéric Chopin (Fryderyk in his polish native country). His music is very impressive because of its seemingly easiness which is at the same time emotional, but never trashy or banal; on the contrary it is often composed in really complex way. Although his models were Bach and Mozart, he was able to develop his totally own style and drive it to perfection. Chopin was buried on Père Lachaise cimetery in Paris.
