We know that Frederic Chopin was born in Poland, west of Warsaw, in 1810, but it's not 100% confirmed on what day. Local baptism records claim the composer came into the world on 22 February, but Chopin's parents said it was 1 March.

Chopin was composing and writing poetry at six, and gave his first public concerto performance at the age of eight. It's not really surprising - his mother was a piano teacher, and his father played the flute and violin.

It seems it's not just musicians inspired by the great composer. A maker of fine vodka has borrowed the composer's name as a universal mark of quality. The excellence of their vodka isn't inspired by other vodka brands on the market, but takes inspiration from Chopin's boundary-breaking mastery.

Frédéric Chopin , in full Frédéric François Chopin, Polish Fryderyk Franciszek Szopen , (born March 1, 1810, Żelazowa Wola, near Warsaw, Duchy of Warsaw [now in Poland] [ see Researcher’s Note: Chopin’s birth date ]—died October 17, 1849, Paris, France), Polish French composer and pianist of the Romantic period, best known for his solo pieces for piano and his piano concerti. Although he wrote little but piano works, many of them brief, Chopin ranks as one of music’s greatest tone poets by reason of his superfine imagination and fastidious craftsmanship.

Chopin’s father, Nicholas, a French émigré in Poland, was employed as a tutor to various aristocratic families, including the Skarbeks, at Żelazowa Wola, one of whose poorer relations he married. When Frédéric was eight months old, Nicholas became a French teacher at the Warsaw lyceum. Chopin himself attended the lyceum from 1823 to 1826.

All the family had artistic leanings, and even in infancy Chopin was always strangely moved when listening to his mother or eldest sister playing the piano. By age six he was already trying to reproduce what he heard or to make up new tunes. The following year he started piano lessons with the 61-year-old Wojciech Zywny, an all-around musician with an astute sense of values. Zywny’s simple instruction in piano playing was soon left behind by his pupil, who discovered for himself an original approach to the piano and was allowed to develop unhindered by academic rules and formal discipline.

Chopin died prematurely at the age of 39 years of tuberculosis. He composed only for piano, except for the two concertos for piano and orchestra: the great brilliant Polonaise and the sonata for piano and cello.

Frédéric Chopin was a romantic pianist, his pieces are full of feelings, technique and poetic musical expression and often also dramatic. His music recalls the purity of Mozart and the virtuosity of his friend Liszt who influenced him.

Chopin organized his works in simple titles: studies, preludes, waltzes, nocturnes, mazurkas, ballads, polonaises, costumes, etc.

When as young as age eight Chopin used to give piano concerts. Thus he wanted to become a professional piano player and moved to Paris in 1830 where he was accepted and welcomed by important composers of his time like Franz Liszt and Hector Berlioz as well as no less important authors like Heinrich Heine and Honoré de Balzac . The aristocratic circles were in competition having Chopin playing in their salon all the time; especially his own compositions which were inspired by his Polish background (e.g. polonaise) were successfull. In 1849 Chopin died of a disease in Paris.
