Books on Chopin proliferate. There is even a book about the books. Critical studies of Chopin's music, then, are few and far between, at least in English. Yet surprisingly few of them examine his music in any but a loosely descriptive, impressionistic fashion. Biography has proved more alluring. Gerald Abraham's book was of immense importance as an early and perceptive introduction, the first serious attempt since Niecks to provide English-speaking readers with an anatomy of the composer's style.

This book shows the gradual unfolding and maturing of Chopin's musical mind, investigates the working of that mind, and isolates and defines those qualities which make Chopin's work unique in the history of music. The book will be useful to the pianist whose intelligent interpretation of Chopin will depend on a thorough knowledge of the composer's style. It will also be of use to students of harmony.
