Frédéric François Chopin ( /ˈʃoʊpæn/
; French pronunciation: [fʁe.de.ʁik ʃɔ.pɛ̃]
; Polish: Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin, also phonetically Szopen; 22 February or 1 March 1810 – 17 October 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso
pianist of French-Polish parentage. He is considered one of the great masters of Romantic music
. Chopin was born in Żelazowa Wola
, a village in the Duchy of Warsaw
. A renowned child-prodigy
pianist and composer, Chopin grew up in Warsaw
and completed his music education
there; he composed many mature works in Warsaw before leaving Poland in 1830 at age 20, shortly before the November 1830 Uprising
Following the Russian suppression of the Uprising, he settled in Paris as part of Poland's Great Emigration
. During the remaining 19 years of his life, Chopin gave only some 30 public performances, preferring the more intimate atmosphere of the salon; he supported himself by sales of his compositions and as a piano teacher. After some romantic dalliances with Polish women, including an abortive engagement, from 1837 to 1847 he carried on a relationship with the French writer Amantine Dupin
. For most of his life, Chopin suffered from poor health; he died in Paris in 1849 at age 39.
The vast majority of Chopin's works
are for solo piano, though he also wrote two piano concertos
, a few chamber pieces
and some songs to Polish texts
. His piano works are often technically demanding, with an emphasis on nuance and expressive depth. Chopin invented the instrumental ballade
and made major innovations to the piano sonata
