Polish by birth, Fryderyk Chopin made his name in post-Revolutionary Paris and is often depicted as the archetypal Romantic artist - blessed with extraordinary talent but consumed by the flame of genius, tormented by intense and tempestuous relationships and doomed to an early death. But how much of this story is based on fact? This account of Chopin's life and times separates myth and reality. Illustrated with numerous musical examples, the narrative takes us from his youthful beginnings as 'a second Mozart' to the darkness and light of his life and the brilliance of his work.
