Frédéric Chopin

Polish composer, Frédéric François Chopin (1810-1849) was a virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era who wrote primarily for solo piano. He was a child prodigy and completed his musical education in Warsaw before settling in Paris in 1830. Chopin was revered by many of his contemporaries including Robert Schumann and became firm friends with Franz Liszt.

The majority of his works include pieces for solo piano including mazurkas, waltzes, nocturnes, polonaises, études, impromptus, scherzos, preludes and sonatas. Other pieces include chamber works, songs and two piano concertos. Most of his works are technically demanding but beautifully expressive with influences of Polish folk music and classical influences of Mozart, Schubert and JS Bach. Chopin died in Paris in 1849 at the age of 39 due to ill health. He has remained one of the most important composers of the Romantic era.


Jean-Pierre Rampal (1922-2000) renowned French flautist toured internationally, recorded a vast array of works involving the flute and in later years, took up conducting.

Rampal won a place to study at the Paris Conservatoire and later founded the French Wind Quintet before becoming Principal Flute of the Paris Opéra (1956–62). In 1968 he took up the post of Flute Professor at the Paris Conservatoire.

He enhanced the status of the flute as a concert instrument through his vast number of recordings from Baroque masterpieces to jazz. He was particularly known for his authentic interpretations of 18th Century music and for his editing skills with the music of the Baroque period.

Rampal’s autobiography, ‘Music, My Love’, was published in 1989.
