Frederick Chopin As A Man And Musician, Volume 1 (fiscle Part-XI)

The Works Of No Composer Of Equal Importance Bear So Striking a
National Impress As Those Of Chopin. It Would, However, Be An
Error To Attribute This Simply And Solely To The Superior Force
Of The Polish Musician'S Patriotism. The Same Force Of Patriotism
In An Italian, Frenchman, German, Or Englishman Would Not Have
Produced a Similar Result. Characteristics Such As Distinguish
Chopin'S Music Presuppose A Nation As Peculiarly Endowed,
Constituted, Situated, And Conditioned, As The Polish--A Nation
With A History As Brilliant And Dark, As Fair And Hideous, As
Romantic And Tragic. The Peculiarities Of The Peoples Of Western
Europe Have Been Considerably Modified, If Not Entirely Levelled,
By Centuries Of International Intercourse; The Peoples Of The
Eastern Part Of The Continent, On The Other Hand, Have, Until
Recent Times, Kept Theirs Almost Intact, Foreign Influences
Penetrating to No Depth, Affecting indeed No More Than The
Aristocratic Few, And Them Only Superficially. At Any Rate, The
Slavonic Races Have Not Been Moulded By The Germanic And Romanic
Races As These Latter Have Moulded Each Other: East And West
Remain Still Apart--Strangers, If Not Enemies. Seeing how Deeply
Rooted Chopin'S Music Is In the National Soil, And Considering
How Little Is Generally Known About Poland And The Poles, The
Necessity Of Paying in this Case More Attention To The Land Of
The Artist'S Birth And The People To Which He Belongs Than Is
Usually Done In biographies Of Artists, Will Be Admitted By All
Who Wish To Understand Fully And Appreciate Rightly The Poet-
Musician And His Works. But While Taking note Of What Is Of
National Origin In chopin'S Music, We Must Be Careful Not To
Ascribe To This Origin Too Much. Indeed, The Fact That The
Personal Individuality Of Chopin Is As Markedly Differentiated,
As Exclusively Self-Contained, As The National Individuality Of
Poland, Is Oftener Overlooked Than The Master'S National Descent
And Its Significance With Regard To His Artistic Production. And
Now, Having made The Reader Acquainted With The Raison D'Etre Of
This Proem, I Shall Plunge Without Further Preliminaries In
Medias Res.
