Chopin's life and his relationship with Georges Sands is interpreted simply and entertainingly. For people who have studied Chopin it is probably skates over important musical development, but for someone like me who just wants to learn to love the music, this is a wonderful CD. Chopin's life would be a good story even if he hadn't been the ultimate composer for piano, so the CD rattles along without becoming boring. If you like this CD, try some of Claudio Arrau's recordings of Chopin.
