The book ‘Music in Chopin’s Warsaw’, originally addressed to an American audience (Oxford 2008), portrays the political and cultural background of Warsaw in Fryderyk Chopin’s youth. The author makes a thorough study and presentation of the musical community in which he grew up. She shows that despite the difficult political situation, the capital was a European center pulsating with life. The extensive iconography contained in the publication awakens the imagination and carries the reader away to the young Chopin’s musical world.
