Background on this item -
Frédéric François Chopin (22 February or 1 March 1810 – 17 October 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist. He is considered one of the great masters of Romantic music and has been called "the poet of the piano".

Chopin was born in ┼╗elazowa Wola, a village in the Duchy of Warsaw. His mother was Polish and his father was a French immigrant to Poland. A renowned child-prodigy pianist and composer, he grew up in Warsaw and completed his musical education there. Following the Russian suppression of the Polish November 1830 Uprising, he settled in Paris as part of the Great Emigration, and never returned to his homeland. During the remaining 19 years of his life, he gave only about 30 public performances, preferring the more intimate atmosphere of the salon; he supported himself financially by sales of his compositions and as a piano teacher. From 1837 to 1847 he carried on a relationship with the French writer Amantine Dupin, Baroness Dudevant, who wrote under the male pseudonym George Sand. For most of his life, Chopin suffered from poor health; he died in Paris in 1849 at the age of 39.

The vast majority of Chopin's works are for solo piano, though he also wrote two piano concertos, a few chamber pieces and some songs to Polish texts. His piano writing is often technically demanding, with an emphasis on nuance and expressive depth. Chopin invented the instrumental ballade and made major innovations to the piano sonata, mazurka, waltz, nocturne, polonaise, étude, impromptu, scherzo and prélude.

CONDITION Details:
LP JACKET:
The LP jacket is in near mint minus condition - superb given it's age! It has the flipped over "clam shell" seams and spine, front covered in clarifoil - highest quality item.
The jacket is completely intact with NO seam splits. The  jacket shows some mild shelf wear, primarily at the corners and seams (very heavy cardboard stock used for this jacket).
The jacket has NO drill holes or saw marks of any kind.
There is NO hand writing on the front or back of the jacket - actually quite lovely with it's colors.
The cover has clean and sharp colors, just a tiny bit of fading/staining due to age - see pictures with this listing for more detail.

The LP (vinyl) itself:
The LP is in near mint minus condition. - A finer copy of this vintage LP would be very hard to find.
The LP retains much of the original gloss and sheen!
The record has NO serious marks on it, obviously well taken care of.
The record labels have NO significant spindle marks on them.
This is the superb copy you have always wanted in your collection - any super picky audiophile should be happy with this one!
This LP does have some light marks (spider marks mostly) which are caused by sliding the LP in and out of the inner sleeve and are usually not audible on most audio systems.

Please understand that this is a vintage LP record - as such, one cannot expect the vinyl to sound like a brand new, audiophile pressing! Some noise is inevitable - for best results, always properly clean your LPs before playing them (even brand new LPs).

The LP is an audiophile quality pressing (any collector of fine MFSL, half speeds, direct to discs, Japanese/UK pressings etc., can attest to the difference a quality pressing can make to an audio system).

A Short Note About LP GRADING -
Mint {M} = Only used for sealed items.
Near Mint {NM} = Virtually flawless in every way.
Near Mint Minus {NM-} = Item has some minor imperfections, some audible.
Excellent {EXC} = Item obviously played and enjoyed with some noise.
Very Good Plus {VG+} = Many more imperfections which are noticeable and obtrusive.

Don't let this rarity slip by!!!
