Review: The Life and Works of Chopin, by Jeremy Siepmann

This is a set of 4 CDs that alternately feature Chopin’s biography and his music. It really is an easy and interesting way to learn more about the 19th century’s greatest composer for the piano. Born in Poland, he lived the majority of his life in Paris. He was quite a dandy with his white gloves and the daily services of a hairdresser. Most of his income came from the piano lessons he gave to the well-to-do daughters of the Parisian upper class. He died in Paris at the age of 39, probably from tuberculosis.

RATING: * * * A good read
