Chopin in the Eyes of Children

Place and date of publication: Piaseczno 2008

Language version: Polish

Publisher: Book House Sp. z o.o.

Musicians in the eyes of Children - It is a series of books about the most outstanding classical musicians. Readers learn about their lives, interesting facts and crazy adventures. At the same time they listen to selected works by the composers.

Chopin in the Eyes of Children is a book about life of one of the most outstanding classical music composers. Readers learn interesting facts from his times, less known details and various anecdotes from Fryderyk Chopin’s life. Moreover, the book comprises a CD  with selected compositions by Fryderyk Chopin.

“I skipped on purpose many facts, especially those related to the historical background. I assumed that there will be time also for this sort of information. In their place we took time to read various anecdotes, especially those from Fryderyk’s childhood. Questions asked by children triggered new stories. Recently, we decided to write down those discussions. That is how this little booklet was created – a story about Chopin in the eyes of children.”, says Dorota Wyżyńska-Konopielko.
