Chopin-Schaum, Book One
Based on Events and Episodes of Chopin's Life
By Frédéric Chopin / arr. John W. Schaum
Schaum Master Composer Series
Piano - Schaum Method Supplement
Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) composed his great music under abstract titles such as: Preludes, Mazurkas, Berceuses, and Waltzes. Modern education advocates graphic descriptive captions that tell incidents: that is why Mr. Schaum has substituted historically interesting titles for the abstract terms. The original titles are always in parentheses. This wealth of true biographical information adds musical appreciation to these authentic Chopin excerpts.This newly engraved edition will be welcomed by teachers and students.
