Music in Chopin's Warsaw

Halina Goldberg

Oxford University Press

Warsaw's music bookstores provided access to a fount of musical knowledge through the repertory printed locally and through imported publications. Through the publication of fashionable musical genres associated with opera and the salon, local printers provided Chopin with the repertory that served as the basis for the formation of his idiomatic musical vocabulary. This chapter includes a brief history of music publishing in Warsaw and detailed descriptions of favored instrumental repertories — mazurkas, polonaises, waltzes, variations, rondos, and fantasias. Vocal repertories published in Warsaw include operatic excerpts, salon romances, sacred music, as well as popular and patriotic songs. The chapter makes connections between these publications and Chopin's early and later compositions.

Keywords:   mazurka, polonaise, waltz, variations, rondo, fantasia, opera arrangement, vocal romance, patriotic song
