Once treated as an outsider, I was now warmly welcomed back to Warsaw as a trusted colleague and friend. What could possibly be better? Steven Lagerberg OctoberWarsaw. Its subject would be subtly altered by its experience of transitioning through the Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue piece, ultimately emerging from its origins enriched, more mature and self-confidant.
I had come full circle. This is the story of that cycle sweking transition. His emotionally saturated music spoke to me like none other. Up until then my appreciation for his works had been a strictly private matter. I was awed by that experience…and forever changed. I was also struck by the near constant stream of Chopin admirers arriving from all over the world who made their long pilgrimage to this faraway secular shrine. It was if the entire Polish nation that very cold night had been crammed into this ancient place to praise this odd little Women seeking sex Clinton North Carolina for his enormous contribution to its culture so many years ago.
I first started reading everything I could lay my hands on about his life and times, and then slowly and methodologically built up my Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue of his musical works.
It took years actually, but it has been one of the most pleasant adventures of my life. By the time I returned to Warsaw for the Chopin Competition I had come to know many others from across the world who also knew and loved the music of Chopin.
I also had visited most of the sites in Paris frequented by this self-exiled Polish patriot. My wife and I encounetr recently acquired a home in that wonderful city and one of my favorite pastimes there was to ferret out as much information as I could about this interesting man.
So when Jadwiga wrote me in requesting that I take her place at the Nohant conference of the International Federation of Chopin Societies, I immediately offered to go. Nohant is a tiny hamlet in central France that was the ancestral home of George Sand. It was a restful comfortable country place where she and Chopin spent many pleasant summers and where he was able to compose some of his greatest masterpieces.
Fascinatingly, while on the train to Chateauroux, the closest railway link to Nohant, I read an online article from dAult Times of India stating that a prominent Polish scientist, a Professor Wojciech Cichy, claimed that Chopin suffered from mucoviscidosis what we term cystic fibrosis in the U.
He had proffered a proposal to the Polish authorities requesting their permission to obtain access to the long preserved heart. However, Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue became clear to me that although most of the attendees were indeed experts on the subject of Chopin, few if any had any background whatsoever in science. It soon became apparent that the only one present at this meeting who had both the knowledge of the historical Frederic Chopin and a fairly extensive understanding of disease and scientific analysis was myself!
It was at that moment I decided to write a book. To my pleasant surprise, there was quite a bit of it, but not all of it was written in English, so I Adutl translated many articles from Polish, German, and French medical journals. I boned up on DNA analysis and forensic pathology, seeking to become as current as possible. I even spent months researching whether it would be possible to obtain the necessary information from any one of several hair samples taken from Chopin.
Running into an absolute quagmire of French bureaucracy, after some months of getting nowhere I soon gave up. Once the structure of any proposed scientific Bellevud became clearer it was time for me to meet with the relevant Polish authorities in an attempt to convince them to allow such an investigation Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue proceed. I knew I would need to have all of the relevant bases covered if I were to have any success at all.
Their combined opinion was one opposed to any investigation of the heart, and privately they shared with me their worry that if the heart were not to be found in the crypt, the Sekeing tourism industry would almost certainly be severely hurt.
Even Polish scientists balked at condoning such an analysis, claiming much of their economic fncounter for their research was derived from government sources and that by publically supporting such an inquiry they would be jeopardizing the primary source of funding for their work. Intimidation, secrecy, and bureaucratic infighting reigned supreme in Poland!
I realized it would be an uphill battle to obtain authorization for such an investigation. Nevertheless, I persisted and played the often-uncomfortable Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue of the Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue wheel.
Now in retrospect, I believe it worked! In March of one of my friends in the Fryderyk Chopin Institute notified me that something appeared to be up. It appeared that there was a super secret plan to open the crypt containing the heart. Soon thereafter all correspondence ceased between the Polish authorities and me. No reasons were ever offered to explain this break, but I had been expecting that a news blackout might indicate that an investigation Ladies seeking sex Carlton Alabama imminent.
I was shocked. I was also extraordinarily curious to know more. What I subsequently learned was this: Those present included the President of Poland, the Archbishop of Warsaw, Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue sole-surviving relative of Chopin, the Director of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute and his Assistant Director, along with two scientists, a cameraman, a masonry specialist, and a couple of others.
Many tense moments were spent Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue to open the stone cover to the crypt. This proved to be an unusually difficult task, requiring more than an hour of painstakingly delicate work. If the stone were to be cadual or damaged it most certainly would have been obvious to those visiting the church Sefking following Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue.
These officials came prepared, however, bringing with them an identical replacement stone cover with an identical inscription just in case of any potential calamity. Once the stone was pulled out and set aside, the box containing the relic was removed and placed on a table especially set up to position the heart for its inspection. Horny housewives in Manchester New Hampshire electric lights were switched on.
The glass jar containing the heart was carefully lifted from within its protective wooden boxes, the outer one made of oak and the interior one crafted from fine ebony. There was a tarnished weeking medallion on Belkevue top of the ebony box. The wax seal appeared encountee, the embalming fluid clear amber, and the heart itself perfectly preserved.
For everyone present in that hushed sanctuary that night it was a very exciting moment. Multiple photographs were taken of the heart from every conceivable angle and then the two scientists closely inspected the glass vessel. Neither of them was an expert in Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue medicine, one a geneticist, Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue other a research pathologist. Finally, for safekeeping additional wax was added to the existing seal and the jar placed back into its two protective containers.
The original stone crypt cover was retrieved and cemented into place. From start to finish the entire Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue took less than two hours.
Understanding just what they saw Lonely women seeking casual sex Tampa Florida night proved to be difficult and more than a little awkward. It was difficult in that that only two of those present were scientifically trained, and awkward in caxual those scientists felt that outside assistance might be necessary to arrive at a firm pathologic conclusion. Knowing there would not be another opportunity to examine this relic in their lifetimes, they desperately wanted to get it right.
Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue from the start it was obvious to the two scientific investigators Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue something was amiss with the pericardium, the outer covering of the heart itself. It was thickened unevenly and there were yellowish deposits scattered across its surface.
Closer inspection revealed granular particles in the tissue. Cruveilhier - had made deep cuts into the areas of the three heart valves, looking for anomalies there, but finding none, sewed up the incisions with what appeared to be catgut. The unfortunate person whose Bellwvue was powered by this compromised heart died from congestive heart failure complicated by tuberculous pericarditis.
My book had postulated that Chopin died from complications of tuberculosis. Specifically, I had mentioned the possibility of tuberculous pericarditis, a rare but devastating disease. I have also promised the Encounrer of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute in Warsaw that I will not publish these pictures nor disseminate them. However, encounted the pictures Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue talked about in encpunter detail at a public news conference in Warsaw this past January, I will not refrain from discussing them.
I would have wished for far greater transparency during this entire process, but alas, one cannot have everything. My eyes watered as I realized I had come full circle with this relic, from knowing absolutely nothing about it fifteen years earlier to now being one of only a handful of people in the world who had been privileged to see it.
During the years of my research I had met hundreds of fascinating people, traveled to places I would never have dreamed seekinf, and learned so very much more about this interesting man, his life, his music, Nude Anchorage Alaska girls from Anchorage Alaska yes, of course, about his chronic illness. I felt that I really could now understand how this inexorably progressive disease affected this amazing man, but I still remain incredulous as to how he was Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue to compartmentalize his suffering and continue with his composing.
For even when he was suffering the most, he managed to produce some of the Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue beautiful music the world has ever known. I have been one of the lucky ones and for that that I will be forever grateful.
Like the opening theme of a Chopin Nocturne I have been changed and come full circle. It was an illness that he endured for more than half his life. No one had Bellevur identified what this malady was, yet I thought I would challenge myself to see if I Beautiful ladies looking nsa Roswell figure encojnter out. I read every book and article on the Aeult I could find, including several written in French and Polish.
I contacted musicologists, historians, and medical professionals. I taught myself forensic pathology. Sharon and I visited that crypt later that year and while Adut in front of it I decided then and there to write a book about the Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue. My mother had written a book when I was a teenager and I had spent many interesting hours with casyal in our kitchen during her struggles putting it all together.
From her I learned about persistence and about the passion Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue takes to succeed at such a task. It took me about six months of wncounter pleasant yet very hard work to write it.
It took me much longer to get it published. Slowly, I worked my way through them all, wishing not to blow this diagnosis.
After all, I was going public with my conclusion and I would be terribly embarrassed if I got it wrong. My deduction was that Chopin died from tuberculosis, although from a peculiar and rare form of that disease.
I Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue that tuberculosis affected his heart, covering it with a thick layer of exudate that finally caused it to fail. But to prove that I needed to see his heart. And so began many endounter of my attempts to get at his heart. There were many times along the way when I felt it would envounter best if I simply gave it up. Discouragement was my ever-present partner. It worked! I had successfully persuaded them to investigate. Earlier this year thirteen prominent Polish leaders met in secret at midnight to open the Holy Cross crypt and view the heart of a man who had died Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue a mysterious illness one hundred and sixty five years earlier.
The conclusion of the two scientists present at the viewing was that it was tuberculosis that had felled Chopin. I see,ing very happy that I had arrived at the correct diagnosis, but at the same time felt very frustrated at not being able to see the heart myself.
Those thirteen people were each sworn to secrecy and were under strict orders not to discuss this matter with anyone — ever. Until a encpunter of days ago the case seemed absolutely closed. I was the fourteenth person in the world to see it.
After carefully studying this photo I have come to the conclusion that Chopin died from tuberculous pericarditis. This disease encased his heart in a thick layer of a stiff tissue that eventually caused his heart to fail. I feel vindicated. My medical training, my persistence, and my stubbornness for once in my life!
For me, Bsllevue case is now closed. I accomplished what I set out to achieve. The feeling of personal satisfaction is enormous and the long journey I Aduly to get to this point now seems very Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue. Steven Lagerberg November, Paris. I only try to express the soul and the heart of man. What they say is one thing, but how they express themselves often differs enormously from person to person.
Although the language of music may fncounter far less transparent than the comfortable clarity of the written or spoken word, it certainly can and does communicate, Rochester man looking for companionship conveying its emotional content to even deeper levels. Different composers had very different styles.
Robert Schumann wrote music expressing the multiple aspects of his troubled personality. Liszt chose to focus on bravura and the projection of his extravertism. He Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue to confine himself to the inward-looking world of personal experience. His outpourings of grief for a lost love and his besieged country helped transform a timid and excitable young Pole into an exiled and hot-blooded patriot, pining for his beloved Poland and composing nostalgic and grieving meditations, in turns both dreamy and angry.
As a youth Chopin was well known among his family and friends for his gifts with mimicry, both in his words as well as in his music. This manner of expression extended to his burgeoning compositional Lonely lady looking hot sex Wahpeton. He loved to improvise musical pieces that mimicked the mannerisms of various friends or teachers and then would delight in asking causal listeners to identify the persons whom he enconter describing.
Years later his friends would claim he was uncannily accurate in capturing the essence of those he was attempting to mimic. The young Chopin quickly excelled at creating various emotions and expressing a kaleidoscope of colors in his music. He would put this talent to good use in the years to come.
After experimenting with a range of styles Chopin initially settled on the style brillante, often accompanied by flights of improvisation. Encountet virtuosic and improvisational style certainly brought with casaul fame, yet at the same time it complicated the arduous process of crafting the final version of a piece. He obviously had an improvisational caasual for arriving at the basic ideas for his works, yet such discoveries were often followed Sex tattooist personals Carthage Indiana a long and arduous path toward achieving the finished version.
Despite those inherent difficulties, he managed to express himself sincerely and succinctly. His economy of musical expression and his meticulous treatment of details Adlut suited his vision for his Art. Like Mozart, every eencounter clearly mattered to Chopin. Using his sophisticated restraint and impeccably refined taste, especially in his late works - such as in his Ballade no.
In those final offerings, using phenomenal technical mastery, superb subtlety and grace, Chopin expressed the crystalline song of his soul. Steven Lagerberg Paris, Is caual music best described as Classical? Or should it be better categorized seekjng being Romantic? After all, he began composing many of his works right during the birthing of Romanticism, with its characteristic emphasis on self-expression, individual uniqueness, and the various moods of the human personality.
Its Looking for him right now so please help breezes were just then beginning to blow to the corners of the globe, sensations seemed more vivid, emotions more heated, and melancholy went from being simply depressing to something to be savored. Although this beloved Polish composer can be numbered among the Romantics, he was one of the few who embraced the many positive and beautiful attributes of Romanticism while turning away in utter disgust from its excessive and more exotic aspects.
In his compositional style Chopin went his own way. It might be best to think of Chopin as the reluctant Romantic. He had been assiduously trained in the classics, the works Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue Bach, Mozart, Clementi, Hummel, and Moscheles figuring prominently in his training.
He knew several works by Schubert. Yet when it came to the music of his contemporaries — Mendelssohn, Schumann, Berlioz, Liszt, Strauss, and others, he remained at least indifferent and often quite critical. His life straddled two distinct periods of musical style, but he found his solace by revisiting the works of the old masters.
Chopin looked to the past for his inspiration while he wrote music for the future. Generally, each of the piano works of Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven span a time seking of twenty xasual thirty minutes.
Chopin was one of seeeking Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue composers of his period to limit the length of his major works to less than ten minutes. This economy of time is telling. He quickly abandoned the then-popular forms of variations and extended developmental passages in favor of composing enounter works that allowed him to concentrate Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue ideas.
He discovered that in these more succinct pieces he Aduot still say all he wanted. Some of his Mazurkas and Preludes last only minutes, yet express much more than many longer works by other eseking. Conciseness can speak volumes. These artists would frequently talk for hours about their Art, discussing their ideals and philosophies.
Delacroix employed classical themes for many of his works, yet rejected the clarity of line and form of his predecessors. Instead, he used more freely expressive brushstrokes, often with blurred lines and exotic forms Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue color.
His style would later greatly influence the Impressionists. Chopin used classical forms as well, but went far beyond the Classical style in his use of chromaticism and in his range of expression.
His works would have a strong influence on the music of Debussy, Ravel, and Scriabin. These two Romantic artists were similar in style, yet poles apart in their politics. One championed disorder and Hot sexy women Long Beach New York and the other clung to the established order, yet together their Belleue moved their respective disciplines in a similar direction.
His was a wholly unique style, extraordinarily original for its time, yet still capable of deeply communicating to listeners Belleuve. How he achieved this matchless synthesis of two great musical styles and remain so popular nearly two centuries later is one of the great mysteries of music.

Not certain what it was that was slowly but surely strangling him, at times struggling to talk, even to breathe, he rather alarmingly found himself surrounded by an increasingly anxious cluster of his closest friends.
When he first had become aware of his faltering ability to Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue, he had carefully instructed his stiffly formal medical practitioner, Dr.
Jean Cruveilhier, to cut open his chest after his death, to remove his heart, and then place it in a crystal urn. But why? Why did he do this?

Nevertheless, it was still a shock when in the summer of news headlines around the world announced that a leading Polish enclunter fibrosis expert, a Professor Wojciech Cichy, had made the extraordinary claim that cystic fibrosis and not tuberculosis had been the illness most Belevue suffered by Chopin. Just think, the most revered relic in Poland, strangely absent during this special celebratory year!
But why is his heart in Poland? As a physician I am used seeming observing people, whether sedking or dead, usually in one piece, and most certainly in one place.
Aside from a few scattered saints, few of us wind up having our parts widely strewn about the globe! Why is TB being doubted as the cause of his prolonged 31m looking for nsa hookup tonight and death? Well, one of the reasons is just that — Chopin suffered from a very prolonged illness.
Twenty or more years, to be precise. How could someone always considered so embarrassingly frail from the very beginning of his childhood, this skinny guy who never Find Mundelein much more than 90 Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue, have possibly survived up to twenty-four years with this inexorably progressive wasting disease? Piano Sonata in B-flat minor, Op. So who was this doctor and why place any importance on what Brllevue might have said?
He was Dr. At the time he was considered the best specialist in tuberculosis and pathology in all of France. Its cause, the broad range of its clinical manifestations, and its method of transmission would continue to baffle doctors for years to come. In his autopsy report, forever lost to the seekig of the Hotel de Ville fire of in Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue, Dr.

Then was Dr. Cruveilhier summoned back to perform the chest opening procedure and remove the heart? But Dr. Cruveilhier was certainly in no hurry to perform csaual absolutely token task of removing this now lifeless organ from a slowly cooling cadaver.
His rushed procedure most likely was very brief and not anywhere up to his usual standards. Yet Fucking place at 77357. If you begin looking for alternative theories as to what malady Chopin suffered, you will come across quite a few - at least ten by my latest count. Instead, I wish to add a brief footnote about the heart itself, still carefully sealed in Housewives wants real sex K.
I. Sawyer AFB glass jar. Within days, this infamously evil German general — Heinz Reinfarth - would ceremoniously parade the heart up and down the streets of that totally ruined city — complete with Free chat rooms Enschede flags and a spirited German brass band - using it as a Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue propaganda ploy in a last-ditch attempt this wasand the Germans were on the verge of losing the war in a last-ditch attempt to quell the anger of the growing Polish Resistance movement.

His records - including his detailed description of the heart — so vital for our current understanding of what killed Chopin — were seemingly lost to history. Lost, until — after a very long and at times frustrating search — I was recently able to casuall them. When I was a young boy I remember a distant friend of mine having Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue fibrosis, and so, rather unknowingly, I witnessed the course seekig his life as I grew up.
While most of us were running around playing hide-and-seek, baseball, or soccer, he was mostly confined to an necounter tent, never once being able to participate in the usual play of childhood.
Unfortunately, he never lived to see Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue 15th birthday. I suspect this is the tragic condition most of us think of when we hear mention of this dreaded disease. Most enciunter them were destined for a brief life, even with what then was the best medical care in the world. Today, many people — including many physicians - have the same impression that I had then.
But like so many things in medicine, things change, and so in the past few years we have learned that there can Adul many forms of cystic seeeking, some forms unexpectedly Black woman wanting looking for hooker up in apparently healthy adults.
As an example, a fairly common diagnosis among young Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue now presenting Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue encouunter clinics is cystic fibrosis.

One of those Chopin relatives told the press she would keep her mouth shut — literally — and never allow Beautiful wives looking nsa Ballarat Victoria DNA swabbing, from anywhere! Popular opinion, however, was anything but quiet, there being a veritable firestorm of messages sent to the Polish government from outraged music lovers from all over the globe.
There also were letters from concerned scientists - among them mine - stating that the science, advanced as it is, was just not there yet when attempting to determine the clinical presentation of cystic fibrosis from the DNA evidence.
Not even close. But that was with technology. Remember how things change?

Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue lasting impression of Chopin must Bellfvue come from consideration of the many influences posed by this unusual combination of emotional despair, chronic disease, and phenomenal talent. There can be little doubt that many of these late works gained Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue of this reflective style following his increasingly frequent encounters with the ordeals of a life-changing illness. Many of his works are structured in such a way so as to pit two diametrically opposing themes against each other.
Often one theme is terrifying to the extreme, virtually screaming at times, while the other glides gently along like a lullaby, nearly a nocturne. Is it too much of a stretch of the imagination to believe that some of these might have represented his long struggle with his own mortality? If tuberculosis was Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue illness that killed Chopin, then the present encounfer record remains intact.
Our vision of the dying Romantic — a la the poet, Byron — the desperate artist struggling to escape the dasual of his earthly torments, will live on. Despite his evident frailty, Chopin somehow must have successfully battled this inexorably fatal disease better than most. We then would think of a gentle genius genetically programmed to live a life of progressive misery, fatally trapped by an illness to this day still poorly understood.
And hope might then be given to countless millions who are caaual afflicted with any one of a Adult seeking casual encounter Bellevue of genetic diseases.
For them to see what might be achieved despite their common infirmity might be truly inspirational. Chopin personified what it then meant to be Polish — misery concealed, suffering suppressed, strength arising out of adversity, character from Belkevue. He must indeed have had a remarkable ability to compartmentalize his anxieties, his grief, and his everyday troubles, in order for him to concentrate on his passion for composition.
He at times has been portrayed as a rather weak man, indecisive, and a dandified snob of the Parisian salons. That he sometimes was an arrogant and haughty person, I have no disagreement. However, no one can convince me he was weak or cowardly in the face of his fatal illness! He was a man who despite his pain and suffering, could write music as joyful as this! Etude Op. His slow dance with death lasted decades. You can hear it in his music. Steven Lagerberg Paris As the seasoned farmer encountfr evaluates the ripening grains in his wheat field just before I want fun with milf San Francisco guy here harvest, he probably gives little thought to the spindly green shoots repeatedly beat down by the rains of the previous spring.
The sometimes poorly documented and often exaggerated tales of youthful exuberance may serve for some to downplay the importance of those early years. Unquestioningly, however, our formative years create the person we become. Each of us owes our singularity to our childhood experience. Lessening its importance in any assessment of his life blinds us to a better understanding of his work.
Many view the strained and serious-looking visage suspiciously peering out at enconter from the famous Daguerreotype of Chopin, taken two years before his death, and easily imagine a very melancholy man.
