Fascinating! I look forward to reading this book eventually. Janis is a very interesting person, indeed.Chopin was my mother's favorite composer. She was a pianist and teacher, and I have many memories of her playing Chopin at home, the music filling the house. I still play some of the Preludes myself, which she taught me to love.
Hi Frank,I just shared this post of yours, along with a Byron Janis rendition of Chopin's Nocturne in C sharp minor, Op 27, No 1 on YouTube, along with his website, which features Grande Valse Brilliant in E Flat as I write.Thanks for this.Yours,Rus
