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.
