Chopin at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

U.S. writer. Born in St. Louis, she lived in Louisiana during her marriage and began to write after her husband's death. A local colorist and interpreter of New Orleans culture, she foreshadowed later feminist themes. Among her more than 100 short stories are "Dé siré e's Baby" and "Madame Celestin's Divorce." The Awakening (1899), a realistic novel about the sexual and artistic awakening of a young mother who abandons her family, was initially condemned for its sexual frankness but later acclaimed.

Polish-French composer. He was born to middle-class French parents in Poland. He published his first composition at 7 and began performing in aristocratic salons at 8. A successful international concert tour was followed by a Warsaw performance in 1830 that virtually endowed him with the status of Poland's national composer. He moved to Paris in 1831, and his first Paris concert the next year thrust him into the highest realm of celebrity. Renowned as a piano teacher, he spent his time in the highest society. He contracted tuberculosis apparently in the 1830s. In 1837 he began a 10-year liaison with the writer G. Sand; she left him in 1847, and a rapid decline led to his death two years later. Chopin stands not only as Poland's greatest composer but perhaps as the most significant composer in the history of the piano, whose capacities for charm, excitement, variety, and timbral beauty he exhaustively exploited. Apart from two piano concertos (both 1830) and four other works for piano and orchestra, virtually all his compositions are for solo piano; they include some 60 mazurkas, 27 é tudes, 26 preludes, 21 nocturnes, some 20 waltzes, 16 polonaises, four ballades, four scherzos, and three sonatas.
