Frederic the great

Frederic Chopin, the Polish composer and pianist, was the quintessential Romantic composer. If you want passion, emotion and pure beauty in your music, you may want to turn to Chopin. You must turn to Chopin.   His piano compositions were unparalleled in grabbing the listener with emotion. While there may be sadness, there can be no complaints of his very short life of 39 years, as God graced us with unimaginable beauty with the talent he gave this wonderful man.The piece I am posting here is the very passionate second movement of his piano concerto #2.This is a romantic movement, of this romantic composer in the romantic era of music.
Chopin has been criticized for his weak orchestration in his piano concertos.  I guess that is why I am not an expert.  It sounds perfect to me.  One thing no one criticizes, is the piano score of his concertos.  Even to a non expert, I know those are perfect.
Hear the emotion and watch the emotion poured out by this pianist.
