Jane Wilhelmina Stirling

Jane Wilhelmina Stirling - Scotswoman, Chopin's student. Chopin aprecciated her playing. She and her sister organized composer's visit and concerts in England in 1848. Stirling bought a majority of his legacy (including Pleyel piano). She donated some of them to Chopin's friends and family. Stirling also looked after gravestone of composer at the Père-Lachaise cemetery.

The collection of notes of Jane Stirling with hand-written Chopin's comments uncludes almost all of his works. E. Ganche used this collection creating the edition of Chopin's composition.

Chopin dedicated his Nocturnes op. 55 to Jane Stirling.
