Chopin jouait du piano dans l'obscurité

 

Fryderyk Chopin only gave around thirty public performances, mostly because he was shy and loved the intimacy of the salon.
Chopin played the piano in the dark throughout his entire life. He would always put out the candles in the room, and even when playing at an event or party, he would ask to extinguish the light in the room.

Chopin's Piano stopped at Spanish customs

Chopin’s favorite piano maker was Pleyel (French builders). When he and Georges Sand went to stay on Majorca island in Valldemossa for Chopin to recuperate from his tuberculosis, his piano was to go with him.
However, it took such a long time to get through the Spanish customs, he had to work with a local piano – but he still managed to compose some of his most famous pieces on it.

Chopin passed away in France.

As death approached, Chopin lay in his bed surrounded by a group of friends and admirers for some days. As the time got close, Chopin asked the young Countess de Potoska who had been tending him, to sing the national anthem of Poland, their country; Jeszcze Polka nie zginela (‘No – Poland is not lost’). He breathed his last as she finished.
