A beautiful and moving video that brings to life Chopin’s early years in 19th century Warsaw. You see where the young “Frycek” lived and hear details of his family, friends, personality and musical progress. Produced by the City of Warsaw, the video interweaves scenes from past and present, the effect showing you how Chopin’s story and city, like his music, live on today.

    Beautiful! As usual, anything Chopin brings me to tears. A genius indeed, of the heart.

    Must visit the places, those that still exist, featured in this wonderfully touching video.

    Since the narration is not in English I cannot follow the story of Warsaw years from this video.

    Truly a very moving film of my hero.
    The narration can be heard in English if you browse.
    I have been lucky enough to visit all the places connected with him, and continue to appreciate his works all the more
