Chopin's Europe free pdf Published to coincide with Fryderyk Chopin's 200th birthday on 1st March 2010, "Chopin's Europe" is a beautifully presented photographic record of all the places that Chopin visited throughout the four decades of his life in Europe. Hanna Komarnicki's highly evocative and personal photographs, painstakingly collated and edited by her husband Juliusz over a decade of extensive European travel, show all the Chopin sites, some familiar, some rarely published, other newly discovered. The compact yet comprehensive text, by critically acclaimed Chopin biographers Iwo and Pamela Zaluski, tells Chopin's story more from a localized, geographical point of view rather than the more usual chronological biography. This innovative format brings to life the varying beauties, moods and aspects of his Continent, from remotest Poturzyn in the sub-Ukrainian hinterland, through the wild, rugged beauties of Majorca to the mist-swathed Highlands of Scotland, places in which he lived, loved, played and composed his memorable masterpieces. The text is liberally complemented with quotations from correspondence, and enhanced with musical excerpts. The Production is by Juliusz Komarnicki, and the Foreword is by Martha Argerich, arguably the greatest Chopin pianist of her generation.

About Pamela Zaluski

Iwo Zaluski, a descendant of Polish aristocrat and composer Michal Kleofas Oginski, was born in Iwonicz-Zdroj. He arrived in London as a refugee in 1946. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in London. His early ambitions as a Chopin pianist were set aside in favour of teaching music and composing. Together with his wife, Pamela Zaluski, he has written: Mozart's Europe: The Early Journeys (1993), The Scottish Autumn of Frederick Chopin (1994), Chopin's Poland (1996), The Young Liszt (1997), Mozart in Italy (1999), and two music books for children, Music through the Ages and How the World Makes Music. Hanna Komarnicki nee Dobrzanska, was born in Cracow, Poland. At the end of the war she moved to Bludenz, Austria. She graduated at Innsbruck Art College and also continued her piano studies at the Innsbruck Music Academy. She has worked as a designer both in Austria and London. Juliusz Komarnicki was born in Bern, Switzerland. In 1945 he moved to London. He studied economics at London University. Since 1971 Komarnickis have lived in Lugano, Switzerland. Hanna has been in recent years very active as a successful artist, exhibiting her paintings in Switzerland and Europe. Juliusz has had a very intense career in books and publishing for the last 36 years and his contacts and love of books have culminated in the realisation of this book.
