About the Author

Adam Zamoyski is a British historian of Polish origin. He is the author of the best-selling 1812: Napoleon's Fatal March on Moscow and its sequel Rites of Peace: The Fall of Napoleon and the Congress of Vienna, as well as several other acclaimed works on key figures and aspects of European history. His books have been translated into Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Persian as well as most of the European languages. His comprehensive history of Poland, The Polish Way, not only featured in the best-seller lists for several weeks when it came out in 1987, but has never been out of print since. Zamoyski has also contributed to all the major British papers and periodicals, as well as lecturing widely in England, Europe and the United States. He lives in London and Poland.

Reviews

'A close, intimate and thoroughly absorbing portrait ... Zamoyski has written a thoughtful, lively and moving account of an extraordinary and exceptional man.' Mail on Sunday

'Those seeking to revisit the genius of the man who Camille Saint-Saens described as "the sweet evening star that shone for only a moment" could do no better than to have this book at their side.' Daily Telegraph

'A fine study of the composer's life and career ... Zamoyski's highly readable account brings non-technical insights into the music itself and he is superb at conveying what is known as Chopin's own playing.' Sunday Telegraph

'As ever, the historian writes with absolute assurance about the politics and culture of his ancestral homeland ... Zamoyski recounts the private life, and public events, with ringing authority.' Independent

'Zamoyski is terrific at probing the subtle contradictions of Chopin.' Evening Standard
