Notes on Chopin by Andre Gide

Notes on Chopin

by Andre Gide

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
1 Hr. 21 Min.


An inspiring discourse on the power of music from one of the 20th century's most important figures, Andre Gide.

Andre Gide, one of the great intellectuals of the 20th century and a devoted pianist, invites readers to reevaluate Frederic Chopin as a composer "betrayed...deeply, intimately, totally violated" by a music community that had fundamentally misinterpreted his work. As a profound admirer of Chopin's "promenade of discoveries", Gide intersperses musical notation throughout the text to illuminate his arguments, but most moving is Gide's own poetic expression for the music he so loved.
