Here’s the B-dur Polonez of FredericChopin from 1817, when Chopin was 7 years old
By the age of seven, he had already composedtwo polonaises, and had begun to giveconcerts. It is unprecedented that a child thisyoung could be so gifted at the piano.
Chopin also had the opportunity to appearbefore the the prince Constantine, so its easyto guess his childhood wasnt resembled thelife that you can measure the average kid.However, the genius requires specialtreatment, and therefore not very surprisingthat the extraordinary abilities written inChopins Warsaw Diary, when he was justeight years.
The main secret ofChopin’s genius is that hewas putting the wholeheart in what he wasplaying - The rules ofChopins play consisted inliberation from therigidity and tension arms.He used to say: „I have tosing by my fingers”.
However Chopin’s approach to the schoolwasn’t very serious. For one thing it wascaused by the educational system. Chopinfinished the high school, but he didn’t writethe Bacallalaureate.
He said: It would be the nonsense to sit here 6hours a day [...], when the meantime there isso much more interesting things you canlearn. I listen Brodzinski, Bentkowski andothers, everything with any relationship withmusic.”
While his studing years in University of Arts inWarsaw he used to listen classical music, playit, work at various sonats and wariations.
You can say without any exaggeration thatuniversity studies formed artistic personalityof Chopin, but without any doubt he wouldhave been able to handle educating himself inthe direction of music and composition,putting in it all his heart.
