Frederic Chopin's Birthday (1810)

Post  Admin on Mon Dec 07, 2009 5:04 am

Frédéric François Chopin (Polish: Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin, sometimes Szopen; surname pronounced /ˈʃoʊpæn/ in English; French pronunciation: [ʃɔpɛ̃]; 1 March 1810[1] – 17 October 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist.[2][3] He was one of the great masters of Romantic music.[4]
Chopin was born in the village of Żelazowa Wola, in the Duchy of Warsaw, to a French-expatriate father and Polish mother and was regarded as a child-prodigy[5][6] pianist. On 2 November 1830, at the age of twenty, he left Warsaw for Austria, intending to go on to Italy. The outbreak of the Polish November Uprising seven days later, and its subsequent suppression by Russia, led to Chopin's becoming one of many expatriates of the Polish Great Emigration.[7]
