Some time in the past week, was the 200th anniversary of the birth of Polish composer, Frederic Chopin. There is some uncertainty as to the exact date, February 22? March 1? Warsaw, Poland decided to celebrate Chopin's 200th for the entire period, 2/22 through 3/1 with free, round-the-clock concerts! What fun!
We have Chopin biographies in both the children's and adult sections. We also have several CDs of his music including a two disk set of Nocturnes with Mauricio Pollini on piano [CD CLASSICAL CHO]
I don't know if it was a nod to Chopin's birthday, but Jeffrey Deaver's 2010 release is The Chopin Manuscript: A Serial Thriller [AB/CD DEAV], a mystery co-written with 14 other writers.
