Frederic Chopin

Peter Attalla

The Romantic Era

I think that Frederic Chopin is worth of study is because of the fact that he and a lot of composers were in the romantic era and we do not really know about these people. For those who like musical history it will be great if we know at least a little about these people because, the more the better. Chopin was a great piano player because he composed a lot of piano compositions like "His 25 Preludes for Piano", his two piano concertos, and his 27 Etudes for piano, so really he was famous for all these compositions during the romantic era. Besides the fact that he when he was 4 years old, he was playing piano LIKE A BOSS. And for those people who really want to be good at piano like Frederic, then you could listen to him for inspiration. ANOTHER REASON why that he is worth of study is because he made so many different piano works like the ones I listed here earlier. AND because he when he was about nineteen moved to Vienna to perform in concerts which means that he was extremely talented even when he was a teenager. Also a quote that Frederic Chopin said was, "Simplicity is the final achievement after one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art," which means that after someone has played a lot of notes he starts to see how easy this thing is. So as one can see Frederic Chopin is REALLY worth of study.
