CHASING CHOPIN A Musical Journey Across Three Centuries, Four Countries, and a Half-Dozen Revolutions

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nancy Peterson

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

This captivating array of personal and historical details of the great composer's life could not have been performed by anyone but Nancy Peterson. Reading a narrative that unfolds like a smoothly written mystery or travelogue, Peterson capture's Annik LaFarge's gentle reverence for every aspect of Chopin's life. Her lyrical pacing and phrasing, beautiful in themselves, contribute to the listening joy and make clear her own reverence for Chopin and what he gave to the world. The audiobook is exquisitely researched and offers many surprises, an example being the author's view that Chopin's passion for teaching and revolutionizing music make him a stronger, more determined figure than other sources paint him to be. This is a treasure for anyone in love with Chopin's music. T.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2021]
