In his tragically short career, Chopin won international renown as both performer and composer, creating a body of work that has been loved and respected ever since. Victor Lederer provides an overview of the composer's life, then analyses the works in each genre, from the short Etudes and Preludes to the large-scale concertos for piano and orchestra. The accompanying CD features 16 tracks from Idil Biret's complete recording of Chopin's piano music.
