Abstract:

The legacy which Chopin left to the world constitutes something unique in the literature of music--unique not only in its scope, but in its extraordinary variety and its range of colour and feeling. In the great corpus of his compositions for the piano (he wrote nothing of significance for any other medium) he expressed thoughts and feelings that had not previously found expression in music and on all he wrote he left the clear mark of his own personality. In this book Gerald Abraham has analysed the factors and circumstances which go to make up Chopin's musical style; he demonstrates clearly the past models on which Chopin built and traces the growth and development of his highly individual keyboard forms.
