CHOPIN: A Polish ‘Nationalist’ whose music also resonates across China

"BEIJING — The great Polish composer Frederic Chopin is one of the classical music world’s best-loved musicians, admired both for his lyrical piano compositions and romantic life story.The bicentennial of his birth has thus been marked by a seemingly endless series of concerts and commemorations.
