Referred to as the poet of the piano, Chopin (1810-1949 ) is known for his gorgeous melodies so beloved for the past 200 years. The French-derived title, "Chopin, Always with You" depicts this sense of endearment for his music. This composition was first introduced in the 2010 Band Journal (a popular Japanese wind band magazine ) commemorating the composer's bicentennial. Since Chopin's melodies are not often translated to the wind band medium, it is my hope that many will enjoy his splendid musical gifts.
