Fun facts about Frédéric François Chopin:
▸ Over 230 works of Chopin survive; some compositions from early childhood have been lost. All his known works involve the piano, and only a few range beyond solo piano music, as either piano concertos, songs or chamber music.
▸ Chopin was educated in the tradition of Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart, and Clementi; he used Clementi’s piano method with his students. He was also influenced by Hummel’s development of virtuoso, yet Mozartian, piano technique. He cited Bach and Mozart as the two most important composers in shaping his musical outlook.
▸ Some of Chopin’s well-known pieces have acquired descriptive titles, such as the Revolutionary Étude (Op. 10, No. 12), and the Minute Waltz (Op. 64, No. 1). However, except for his Funeral March, the composer never named an instrumental work beyond genre and number, leaving all potential extramusical associations to the listener; the names by which many of his pieces are known were invented by others.
▸ Improvisation stands at the centre of Chopin’s creative processes. However, this does not imply impulsive rambling.
