In 1818, one of the Warsaw newspapers wrote: “The author of this Polonaise is a student who has not yet turned 8 years old. This is a real genius of music performing the most difficult piano pieces and composing dances and variations that delight connoisseurs with the greatest easiness and exceptional taste.” So began the brilliant musical career of Frederic Chopin - the great Polish composer and pianist. Forced to leave Poland at the age of 20, Chopin continued to speak the language of his homeland in music. The rhythm of Polish folk dances - mazurka and polonaise - penetrates all his work, becoming the basis not only for a lyrical expression, but also for a narration of dramatic scopes. Chopin's melodies, refined and sophisticated, full of romantic freedom, entered the treasury of world music.
