£34.99

Product description

Life of Chopin by Franz Liszt Translated in full for the first time by John Broadhurst

An enlightening insight of the character of Polish composer Frederic Chopin (1810-49), of whose life few know except through the works he left us. In this book, translated by Martha Walker Cook (1806-74) from the original French and originally published in about 1863, Franz Liszt (1811-86), a close friend of Chopin's and himself a renowned composer and piano virtuoso, analyses Chopin's works and gives us a glimpse of the man behind the artist, who rarely gave concerts and felt the fullest emotion of his own works. For anyone interested in Chopin's life and works, this book, a copy of which came to me through interlibrary loan from the Montclair (NJ) State University library, is a recommended read.
