    Book details

The Cambridge Companion to Chopin provides the enquiring music-lover with helpful insights into a musical style which recognises no contradiction between the accessible and the sophisticated, the popular and the significant. Twelve essays by leading Chopin scholars make up three parts. Part 1 discusses the sources of Chopin's style in the music of his predecessors and the social history of the period. Part 2 profiles the mature music, and Part 3 considers the afterlife of the music - its reception, its criticism and its compositional influence in the works of subsequent composers.

'… strongly recommended to students, teachers, and researchers. Non-specialists will find useful and reliable introductions to various facets of Chopin's life and music while specialists will encounter provocative viewpoints in a number of contributions.'Notes'… highly recommended to anybody seeking an easily digestible yet informative overview of Chopin the man, his music, and his public.' Susan Bradshaw, The Musical Times

Review Text

  • By LUIS GARCIA GARCIA on 24 August 2014

    A perfect companion but you must to know how to read music.

  • By Mr. James Armour on 9 November 2015

    An excellent compilation. It's a pity Samson's "Chopin Studies" is out of print and pretty unobtainable, but this has some great articles.
