Chopin: Desire of Love, directed by Jerzy Antczak, is a biopic of Poland's most famous composer.
In 1830, Chopin (Piotr Adamczyk) is in Warsaw, in a Poland occupied by
Russia. Irritated by being called to perform like a trained monkey by
the Grand Duke, in the wake of oppression Chopin flees to Paris. After
initial struggles in France, his compositions are finally published and
he catches the eye of one of the foremost authors of the day, George
Sand (Danuta Stenka). She immediately falls in love with him, but he
resists at first. Even after they join together, their lives are
complicated by her difficult children, Maurice (Adam Woronowicz) and
Solange (Bozena Stachura), and not least of all, by Chopin's galloping
consumption that sentences him to an early death.

(Limelight). Martin provides a guide to opera that is sweeping in its scope, thorough in its detail, and authoritative in its commentary. He recalls a century of achievement in an art form that today enjoys unprecedented popularity and that has been generously enriched by challenging works in many cases yet to be fully recognized of the modern era.

What a fantastic bargain - everything that Verdi wrote, (as far as I can tell,) in cracking performances and stunning Decca sound for a bargain price. Not only that but you get a substantial softback book containing all the libretti - although admittedly no translations, only the original Italian. Still who can grumble when you have performers like Marriner, Karajan, Solti, Abbado, Pavarotti, Ramey, Sutherland ....... - all caught in their prime.
