I am currently reading through all of Polish composer's Frederick Chopin's letters that he wrote in his life, and I seem to have stumbled upon an
artist that Chopin mentions during his life... This artist appears to be of great inspiration to Chopin (or at the very least Chopin, a brilliant
musician, thinks this pianist has a great deal of talent). With Chopin being somewhat of an idol to me, I am very curious, as you must assume, to who
this person is and more importantly what this man's music sound like!
In a letter to Jan Bialoblocki (Which he calls Jasia) from Warsaw, Poland on Sunday the 30th of October in 1825, Chopin writes his letter explaining
this person about 4 paragraph into the conversation... He says
...a certain Mr. Rembielinski, a nephew of the President, has come to Warsaw from Paris. He has been there for 6 years, and plays the piano as I have
never yet heard it played...
He then describes that the man calls himself an amateur, not an artist, and then compliments his "quick, smooth, rounded playing" and that "his left
hand is as strong as the right".
I am most fascinated... and wish to know of somewhere I can hear this music that this man played, and better yet what music he composed (if so he
did). The author who put the collection of letters together makes a note for the reader to observe, stating that the pianist's full name was Alexander
I hope someone can help me with finding some things out about this man, especially his music.
