Music & Musical Instruments
Music is a form of expression in the medium of time using the structures of tones and silence. It is the creation of complex forms in time through construction of patterns and combinations of natural stimuli, principally sound. As a human activity, music may be used for artistic or aesthetic, as a means of communication, entertainment, or ceremonial purposes. The definition of what constitutes music varies according to culture and social context.

Frederic Chopin
The webiste of the Frederic Chopin Society in Warsaw

"This website has been set up by the Frederic Chopin Society in Warsaw, which for 70 years has been collecting Chopiniana and promoting knowledge about the composer and his works. Now, thanks to the Internet, we can reach many more people throughout the world, who are interested in Chopin and his music, and we hope that our service will be an exciting adventure of discovery as well as providing information on specific aspects of Chopin's life and works. We have structured the material in order to make access to it as easy as possible, using the powerful Internet World Wide Web facilities. There are three major sections:

* the life of Chopin

* the works of Chopin

* the Chopin tradition

These three areas cover in total some 30 subjects."

From Wikipedia:

"Frédéric François Chopin (1810–1849) was a Polish pianist and composer. He is widely regarded as one of the most famous, influential and admired composers for the piano. He was born in the village of Żelazowa Wola, Poland, to a Polish mother and French expatriate father. Hailed as a child prodigy in his homeland, Chopin left for Paris at the age of 20. In Paris, he made a career as a performer and teacher as well as a composer. He had a turbulent 10-year relationship with the French writer George Sand from 1837 to 1847. Always in fragile health, he succumbed to pulmonary tuberculosis at the age of 39. Chopin's compositions, which are mainly for the piano, include his Funeral March (part of his second piano sonata but composed long before the other parts) and the twenty-four études and are widely considered to be among the pinnacles of the piano repertoire. Although some of his music is among the most technically demanding for the instrument, Chopin's style emphasizes poetry, nuance, and expressive depth rather than mere technical display. His works are often cited as one of the mainstays of Romanticism in nineteenth-century classical music."

The Beethoven-Haus in Bonn
The official website of a major archive relating to the life of the great German composer

"Discover new or little-known facts about the famous composer. Gain an insight into the work of the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn and make use of the varied services on offer. In the place where Beethoven was born he is still at his most alive."

From Wikipedia:

"Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827) was a German composer and pianist. He is widely regarded as one of history's greatest composers, and was the predominant figure in the transitional period between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western classical music. His reputation and genius have inspired - and in many cases intimidated - ensuing generations of composers, musicians, and audiences. Born in Bonn, Germany, he moved to Vienna, Austria, in his early twenties, and settled there, studying with Joseph Haydn and quickly gaining a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. In his late twenties he began to lose his hearing, and yet continued to produce notable masterpieces throughout his life in the face of this personal disaster, even as his hearing deteriorated. Unusually among his contemporaries, he worked as a freelance composer, arranging subscription concerts and being supported by a number of wealthy patrons who considered his gifts extraordinary."

The J S Bach Home Page
A scholarly, comprehensive site on the works of the great composer

Maintained by an American lady and a Dutchman, this well-established site covers:

* Biography

* Bibliography

* Portraits

* A Tourist Guide

* The Complete Works

* Recordings

From Wikipedia:

"Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) was a prolific German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra and solo instruments drew together the strands of the baroque genre and brought it to its ultimate maturity. Although he introduced no new forms, he enriched the prevailing German style with a robust contrapuntal technique, a control of harmonic and motivic organisation from the smallest to the largest scales, and the adaptation of rhythms and textures from abroad, particularly Italy and France. Many people consider him to be the greatest Baroque composer, and one of the greatest composers of all time. He was one of the leading figures, along with the likes of George Frideric Handel, in the transition from baroque to Classical music. Revered for their intellectual depth, technical command and artistic beauty, J.S. Bach's works include the Brandenburg concertos, the keyboard suites and partitas, the Mass in B Minor, the St. Matthew Passion, The Musical Offering, The Art of Fugue and a large number of cantatas, of which about 220 survive."

The Mozart Project
The Life, Times & Music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791) was a prolific and highly influential composer of European classical music. His enormous output of more than 600 compositions includes works that are widely acknowledged as pinnacles of symphonic, chamber, piano, operatic, and choral music. Mozart is among the most enduringly popular of European classical composers, and many of his works are part of the standard concert repertory."
