I hope it's not a problem if I called You Anh.
Asuming You wrote the list of Chopin's work that can be found at "Work list", I would like to ask You a question.
I recently started to write an essay on Chopin. I wrote 30 pages in Microsoft Word about his life and music. Hopefully, one day I will have a material to publish a book.
First chapter is about his family, childhood, education, first signs of his genious music mind, traveling in Poland when he was young and his playing and compositions when he was still a child.
Second chapter is about second part of his life; when he traveled out of Poland. Some sentences how he felt and what did he do when he was in Austria and Germany, about his setlement and life in Paris, first big love Marynja Wodzinski, second big love Aurora Dudevant (George Sand); trips to Spain with her and getting suddenly sick there, trip to Italy with her and spending time in Nohant with her and then the end of that love with Geroge sand.
Third chapter is about his life in 1848 and 1849 year, which were his last two years.
Fourth chapter is about his improvisations and influence on modern music (for now it's really short, also as fifth chapter so far).
Fifth chapter is about the events that are being made all around the world in his honnor.
Sixth chapter is his work list.
Seventh chapter is a list of sites and books I used.
That's the structure so far.
I would like You to ask You about this sixth chapter. I thought to translate the work list I found here at "Work list" part of this site, and use it, in pretty similar way. For example, let's take Etudes:
Etide Op. 10 (br. 1 - br. 12) 1829 - 1833
Br. 1 u C - duru (Waterfall)
Br. 2 u a - molu (Chromatic)

Br. 4 u cis - molu (Torrent)
Br. 5 u Ges - duru (Black keys)
Br. 6 u es - molu
Br. 7 u C - duru (Toccata)
Br. 8 u F - duru (Sunshine)
Br. 9 u f - molu
Br. 10 u As - duru
Br. 11 u Es - duru (Arpeggio)
Br. 12 u c - molu (Revolutionary)
Etide Op. 25 (br. 13 - br. 24) 1835 - 1837
Br. 1 u As - duru (Aeolian harp)
Br. 2 u f - molu (Bees)
Br. 3 u F - duru (Carthwheel / Horseman)
Br. 4 u a - molu
Br. 5 u e - molu (Wrong notes)
Br. 6 u gis - molu (Thirds)
Br. 7 u cis - molu (Cello)
Br. 8 u Des - duru (Sixths)
Br. 9 u Ges - duru (Butterfly)
Br. 10 u h - molu ( Octaves)
Br. 11 u a - molu (Winter wind)
Br. 12 u c - molu (Ocean)
Etudes de la Methode des Methodes
(Trois nouvelles etudes) (br. 25 - br. 27) 1839 - 1840
Br. 1 u f - molu
Br. 2 u As - duru
Br. 3 u Des - duru
Am I allowed to do this with Your approval? The way You did Your work list I find very good and it's most convenient work list I ever found. If I would translate it and use it in similar form, I would point out it's scource is Your work list I found at this site, www.ourchopin.com
. I would be very happy if You allow me to do this but if You think I shouldn't do this, I understand.
Thank You for reading!
