(March 1, 1810– October 17, 1849)
Polish pianist and composer Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin was born in 1810 and was already composing music by the time he turned seven. Known as “little Chopin” throughout Warsaw, by age twelve his piano skills surpassed those of his instructor.
By age twenty, Chopin had written some of the world’s best concertos, ballads, and preludes, which he spent the next two decades performing throughout Europe, his considerable talent continuously praised by critics and audiences alike. His most prolific and profound works were composed during the 1840s, while he was staying in Nohant, in central France. He died in 1849 in Paris after a battle with tuberculosis.
