Rowland, David (2010). Chopin and early nineteenth century piano schools. In: Szklener, Artur ed. The Sources Of Chopin’s Creative Style: Inspirations And Contexts. Warsaw: Narodowy Instytut Fryderyka Chopina, pp. 83–96.


The paper briefly examines the rise of the idea of performing schools in the early nineteenth century and examines some of the core texts that describe piano schools of the first half of the nineteenth century. Chopin never quite fitted into any of the mainstream schools and the paper examines the consequent effect on his career.
