Music in Chopin's Warsaw

Oxford University Press

This chapter outlines the history of Poland from the final loss of independence in 1795 to the November Uprising of 1830. Cultural developments taking place during the periods of the Duchy of Warsaw and Congress Kingdom are placed within their historical and economic contexts. Attention is given to the debate between the proponents of Classicism, supporting the rationalist ideology; and the supporters of Romanticism, headed by Mickiewicz who embrace idealism. Polish Romantic ideology is specifically manifested through the birth of the Slavophile doctrine, the restoration of Sarmatism, and efforts to construct and uphold national identity.

Keywords:   history, duchy of Warsaw, Congress Kingdom, November Uprising, Romanticism, Classicism, national identity, Adam Mickiewicz, Rationalism, Idealism
