Notes and Editorial Reviews
The summer of 1846 was to be the last that Chopin would spend at George Sand's estate in Nohant. It was there that he composed or completed the core of his works over a period of seven years. That last, golden summer produced some of Chopin's most ambitious pieces, including the Barcarolle, the Nocturnes Op.62a, and of course the Cello Sonata, the very last work published in his lifetime. Pascal Amoyel and Emmanuelle Bertrand plunge us into the heart of those few months before the couple's separation; the ailing Chopin did not yet know that he was leaving his musical testament.
