Description
 
This heavily illustrated album includes a collection of 17 essays which shed new light on situations and figures from Chopin's milieu.  The text focuses on scenes and images that portray his character and behaviour and inform an assessment of his oeuvre.  We encounter Chopin as a satirist, a dreamer and a great patriot.  The author shows us this outstanding composer as a man of many talents, not only musical - an accomplished drawer and brilliant parodist.  There emerges from these essays a picture of Chopin as caricaturist, a dandy and a man blessed with extraordinary sensitivity and a sense of humour; a picture of a creative artist who with his personality entertained the salons of both Warsaw and Paris.

The musicologist Janusz Ekiert is known for his columns, essays, reports, magazines, music reviews, radio and television series and regular pieces for the Polish daily Express Wieczorny.  He has worked as a correspondent for leading newspapers in Amsterdam, Vienna, Helsinki and Zagreb and been a guest of many renowned music festivals and centres in Europe and America.
