Chopin by Michał

  1. 1. February 22nd 1810 – October 17th 1849
  2. 2. Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin was a Polish composer. Chopin's father was Nicolas Chopin, a Frenchman who had emigrated to Poland. He married Justyna Krzyżanowska and settled at Żelazowa Wola, forty-six kilometers west of Warsaw, where Fryderyk was born. Chopin's family were musically inclined. Chopin's father played the flute and violin; his mother played the piano. As a result Fryderyk became familiar with music in its various forms and by six, he was already trying to reproduce what he heard or to make up new melodies.
  3. 3. Great majority of Chopin's compositions were written for the piano as solo instrument. Chopin invented musical forms such as the instrumental ballade, and made major innovations in the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne, polonaise, étude and prélude. Following the Russian suppression of the Polish November Uprising of 1830, Chopin settled in France. Several of Chopin's pieces have become very well known • the Revolutionary Étude (Op. 10, No. 12) • the Minute Waltz (Op. 64, No. 1 • the Funeral March Sonata No. 2 (Op. 35), third part of which is often used as an iconic representation of grief. Based on Michał’s work, 6th grade
