Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) was born to musical partents and became a virtuoso pianist and composer.  He was born in Zelazowa Wola, Poland as "Fryderyk" but changed his name to the French spelling of "Frederic" as he spent his adult life in Paris, France. He was homeschooled to age 13, and earned his music degree from the Warsaw Conservatory.  He never married but had a romantic involvement with the female french writer, George Sand.  Afflicted with TB, he died at age 39.  230 of his compositions remain today. His most famous works include the "Minute Waltz," the "Viennese Waltz," the "Fantaisie-Impromptu," and the "Polonaise in A Flat." Many popular songs of our day utilize melodies originated by Chopin.
