(p.3) Introduction
Music in Chopin's Warsaw

Halina Goldberg

Oxford University Press

The introductory chapter examines the historiography of Chopin's Warsaw. Special attention is given to the effects of the Romantic, nationalist, racial, and communist ideologies on previous scholarship, as well as the marginalization of Polish culture by foreign scholars, especially Frederick Niecks. Reasons for the need to re-examine and reassess Warsaw's musical and intellectual environment in the early 19th century and its impact on Chopin's oeuvre are provided. These include the need to understand better his multi-ethnic environment, the nature of popular musical genres, and the impact salon culture had on Chopin's music.

Keywords:   Frederick Niecks, historiography, Communism, capitalism, Polish culture, race theory, scholarship, popular music, salon culture
