The glorious culture of France is echoed in the classic melodies of Chopin. This volume of the NAXOS MUSICAL JOURNEY transports us with the evocative sounds of Chopin's masterful early piano concertos. Visit Paris and stroll the Place Vendome or the Luxembourg Gardens; experience the splendor of the Opera Garnier or the intimacy of the Museum of Romantic Life with its memories of Chopin and his great love George Sand; travel outside the city to the famed wine making region of Burgundy; thrill to the ancient Roman ruins of Arles, Nimes and Franche-Comte. From the relaxing spa town of Salin-les-Bains to the sophistication of Paris, this is a trip as unforgettable as Chopin's music.
