I got interested in making a website on Chopin after seeing the movie Impromptu, which depicts how his love affair with authoress George Sand began. I was already a bit familiar with the composer having played some of his nocturnes a couple of year ago; but, never having the talent and dedication the piano required, I quit after nine years. I still greatly enjoy listening to classical music, and I hope this web page will get others interested too.
If you need more specific information on Frederic Chopin or anything else, look for it on Amazon.com. The following are direct links to the Amazon products concerning Chopin. I have catagorized them into biographies, music books (as in sheet music), completely Chopin CD's, and CD's with the works a multitude of composers, including Chopin. I hope you find these links helpful. Enjoy!
