Fryderyk Chopin: Pianist from Warsaw Hardcover – March, 1987
From Library Journal
Chopin's appearances as a concert pianist were relatively infrequent and the circumstances surrounding them are well known. Atwood, author of an account of Chopin's affair with George Sand ( The Lioness and the Little One , LJ 10/1/80), adds little to our knowledge of the composer's music, his technique and style of playing, or the social history of 19th-century concert life, so different from our own. Lengthy processions of names, dates, and places wander about this book in search of meaningful contexts, while a slightly breathless, anecdotal style betrays more debt to popular biography than to serious scholarship. Too detailed for general readers but not rigorous enough for scholars, this is not a necessary purchase for most libraries.Ross Wood, Wellesley Coll. Lib., Mass.
