Review of the concerto in E minor
The "Krajowy Dziennik Powszechny" published an article informing about the new composition by Chopin – the Concerto in E minor: "Fryderyk Chopin has composed his second great Concerto. In the past, in his room, among close friends and the best masters and experts living in our capital he performed it for the first time with orchestra. […] It is a work by a genius. Originality and the charm of thought, rich imagination, talent for instrumentalisation, finally virtuoso execution charmed the listeners. Chopin’s genius assures him an unusual and everlasting fame. It has been heard and assessed in Vienna, adored by Hummel and Czerny, we can be sure that it will soon achieve a European name. Soon, as allegedly in less than a month he will travel abroad. Friendliness of his compatriots will accompany him everywhere. Let’s hope that no foreign capital will keep him forever; that shining with a new glamour he will come back to his family and to his family city. […]".
