Chotomska Wanda

Mr Chopin’s Music

Place and date of publication: Warsaw 2010

Language version: Polish

Publisher: The Fryderyk Chopin Institute / Wydawnictwo Media Rodzina


A book with a CD containing outstanding recordings of Fryderyk Chopin’s compositions constitutes a chance to broaden the knowledge about the composer and his work. The book features beautiful poems about Fryderyk Chopin and places related to him. Wanda Chotomska describes for the young reader the childhood and young life of Fryderyk. The text features excerpts of letters written by Frycek to his friends, which makes it easier to learn about the world he lived in. Moreover, illustrations full of warmth trigger children’s imagination. The book contains such examples of classic poems for children as: In Żelazowa Wola (pl. W Żelazowej Woli) or Two Pianos (pl. Dwa fortepiany).


To celebrate the Chopin Year, the Publishing House Media Rodzina together with the Fryderyk Chopin Institute prepared a radio-play titled Mr. Chopin’s Music. The form of radio-play makes it easier to present the most famous Fryderyk Chopin’s compositions which are perfectly intertwined with narration; among them there are the Polonaise in A major, excerpts of the Concertos in F minor and in E minor and of course Etude Revolutionary. The CD has been recorded in cooperation with the famous Polish actors: Zbigniew Zamachowski, Agnieszka Warchulska and Maria Robaszkiewicz-Kowarska.
