BBC Radio 4 - Book of the Week, Chopin: Prince of the Romantics
Summary A completely new edition of the definitive biography of Chopin, unavailable for many years, by one of the finest of contemporary European historians. Two centuries have passed since Chopin's birth, yet his legacy is all around us today. The quiet revolution he wrought influenced the development of Western music profoundly, and he is still probably the most widely studied and revered composer.
For many, he is the object of a cult.
Yet most people know little of his life, of the man, his thoughts and his feelings; his public image is a sugary blur of sentimentality and melodrama. Adam Zamoyski cuts through the myths and legends to tell the story of Chopin's life, and to reveal all that can be discovered about him as a person. He pays particular attention to recent revelations about the composer's health, and places him within the intellectual and spiritual environment of his day.

Roman Dzwonkowski SAC 5. It keeps you involved from the first page to the last one. You watch the little Fryderyk grow, when he is just a kid, in whom adults put their trust and hopes.
His life engages you as if it was your own. When his life ends, you are violently brought back to the colourless reality. An excellent book, a deep and true story of an exceptional man, without the myth that aroused around him.
So, if you want to keep your life to yourself, do not read it.
