I totally agree. As one person said (I forgot who): "Chopin's conpositions are like cannons covered with flowers. If the Tasr knew Chopin's compositions were so estranged, he would've forbidden them." (something like this).

If I'm not mistaken, Schumann said that quote. I think I ask about that in one of the quizzes. Uh oh, I shouldn't have posted this reply Twisted Evil
