About the Authors
  • The accounts of Chopin's pupils, acquaintances and contemporaries, together with his own writing, provide valuable insights into the musician's pianistic and stylistic practice, his teaching methods and his aesthetic beliefs. This unique collection of documents, edited and annotated by Jean-Jacques Eigeldinger, reveals Chopin as teacher and interpreter of his own music. Included in this study is extensive appendix material that presents annotated scores, and personal accounts of Chopin's playing by pupils, writers, and critics.

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...truly a book about the way Chopin played the piano, and about the way he interpreted his own music...Anyone interested in Chopin will be grateful to Eigeldinger..." Charles Rosen, The New York Review of Books

    "...really indispensable to the serious student of Chopin. Almost all those reading it will find their view of the composer made sharper and truer than before." Nicholas Temperley, Notes
