Frédéric Chopin is considered Poland's greatest composer of the Romantic period.

Chopin's mother, a piano teacher, introduced him to the piano at a very young age. By the time he was six, he played extremely well and was starting to compose. He gave his first concert at the age of eight. Frederic became a child prodigy. He was better than his piano teacher after only a few years of lessons.

Most of Chopin's music was written for piano. He wrote 59 mazurkas, 27 études, 27 preludes, 21 nocturnes and 20 waltzes. Much of Chopin’s music is very beautiful and joyful. However, it can also be very angry as well.

Chopin died in 1849 from tuberculosis, at the age of 39. Mozart's Requiem was performed at his funeral.

Great Composers: Frédéric Chopin is the third of our series of incredible composers. What a great way to introduce your children to classical music. Each eBook in this series is meant to not be overwhelming. They provide a springboard into the world of music. Each includes a biography, timeline, fascinating facts, puzzle, lapbook, and coloring pages.

We hope your child enjoys their journey into classical music!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
