You will furhter understand Chopin music through immersion in the Polish culture.
Studying Chopin without visiting Poland is like learning a language and never visiting the country where the language is spoken.
In order to understand the rhythm, melody and emotions of Chopin music, it is vital to understand the culture of his country. Purely mastering the technical intricacies will not suffice to express the music as well as after visiting Poland and experiencing its cultural heritage. This heritage had a profound influence on Chopin’s compositions. Many of his mazurkas, waltzes, and polonaises were inspired by the Polish songs and dance music.
