Music in Chopin’s Warsaw by Halina Goldberg



Music in Chopin’s Warsaw by Halina Goldberg
This book examines the rich musical environment of Fryderyk Chopin's youth largely unknown to the English-speaking world and places Chopin's early works in the context of this milieu. A rigorously-researched and fascinating look at the Warsaw in which Chopin grew up, this book will appeal to students and scholars of nineteenth century music, as well as music lovers and performers.
Halina Goldberg provides a historiographic perspective that allows a new and better understanding of Poland's cultural and musical circumstances. Chopin's Warsaw emerges as a vibrant European city that was home to an opera house, various smaller theaters, one of the earliest modern conservatories in Europe, several societies which organized concerts, musically active churches, spirited salon life, music publishers and bookstores, instrument builders, and for a short time even a weekly paper devoted to music.
