rtnerthortheater, where Chopin played the Concerto in E minor. Strong and dramatic emotional experiences inspired the creative imagination of the composer, probably accelerating the emergence of a new, individual style, quite different from his previous brilliant style.
The new works, which revealed force and passion, included the sketch of the Scherzo in B minor and, above all, the powerful Etudes.
Chopin soon began studying the theory of music, figured bass and composition at the Warsaw High School of Music, which was both part of the Conservatory and, at the same time, connected with Warsaw University. During this period of time, Frederic composed a series of extended works, and after the third year of his studies Elsner wrote in a report: “Chopin, Frederic, third year student, amazing talent, musical genius”.
After completing his studies, Chopin planned a longer stay abroad to become acquainted with the musical life of Europe and to win fame.
Chopin, however, ultimately chose Vienna where he wished to consolidate his earlier success and establish his reputation.
