Welcome to Chopin Music!
Music is defined as “the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.” A musician, then, is passionate by definition and soulful in character. And while music plays an integral role in modern society, it has done so for several centuries.
The works of Bach are the hallmark of baroque polyphony, while the masterpieces of Mozart and Beethoven are the quintessential developments of classical style. Romantic music, while highly structured, allows for greater expression of emotions. And works of the twentieth century, some more reminiscent than others, comprise the evolution that has led to the music we know today.
Chopin Music was launched in 2004 as both a network and a resource. The goal is to provide an educational environment, rich in both content and scholarly discussion. We are students, teachers and hobbyists, but essentially we are musicians. Central to our enjoyment of music is the genius of Chopin, a Polish composer of the nineteenth century. While the focus of our community is on classical music in general, the content of our site is limited to the music of this remarkable composer and those who influenced it.
We have grown since 2004 to become one of the Internet’s most significant Chopin resources. Hundreds of pianists post thousands of posts in our forum, while many contribute considerably to the contents.
Whether you are a connoisseur of the fine arts or you are here to find some specific information, we welcome you, we hope you will learn something new, and we hope that you will visit us again soon!
