Poland chopins birthplace

Chopin was born in Poland and is considered to be a brilliant composer and pianist. He was born in 1810 and died in 1849 aged 39 in Paris.

We are going to be studying the Etudes that Chopin wrote

It might sound a bit different from some of the music you usually listen to and I will be really interested in hearing your opinions once we get started.
