Chopin’s Heart Rests in Warsaw
Frederic Chopin was a famous pianist and composer. He traveled to many places in Europe. But he never forgot his deep love for his hometown: Warsaw, Poland.
Chopin was born in Warsaw in 1810. He first studied music at the Warsaw Main School of Music. His skill grew and grew, and soon he moved to Paris. At that time, Paris was a great city for composers to work on their music. However, Chopin missed Warsaw and wanted to return.
Because of war, he could not go back to Warsaw. Instead, in Paris, he began composing music about his hometown. He wrote many mazurkas. Mazurkas are a type of Polish dance music. These works made him famous.
When Chopin died, he was buried in Paris. But before his death, Chopin insisted that his heart be taken to his hometown. According to his wishes, his sister took his heart and buried it in Warsaw. This way, Chopin’s heart could rest in the city that he loved.
