Excerpt from Chopin: The Man and His Music
Though his inner life was richer, nourished as it was in the silence and the profound unrest of a being that irritably resented every intrusion. There were events that left ineradicable impressions upon his nature, upon his work: his early love, his sorrow at parting from parents and home, the shock of the Warsaw revolt, his pas sion for George Sand, the death of his father and of his friend Matuszytiski, and the rupture with Madame Sand these were crises of his history. All else was but an indeterminate factor in the scheme of his earthly sojourn. Chopin though not an anchorite resembled F laubert, being both proud and timid; he led a detached life, hence his art was bold and violent. Unlike Liszt he seldom sought the glamor of the theatre, and was never in such public view as his maternal admirer, Sand. He was Frédéric Francois Chopin, composer, teacher of piano and a lyric genius of the highest range.
