Chopin's Polish Letters

Chopin's Polish Letters Chopin's Polish Letters

'The present volume is cause for celebration. The translations by David Frick at last allow the Anglophone audience unfettered, nuanced access to Chopin’s distinctive Polish voice. Within individual letters, we witness the characteristic processes of the composer’s imagination, at times in fully developed narratives (with logical structures of storytelling and distinctive turns of phrase), at other times unfolding through spontaneous digressions, entertaining outbursts, or angry curses (with the flow of the prose feeling more fragmented, often taking place in incomplete sentences)'.
