Fryderyk Chopin - a new portrait photography?Dear Chopin Fans,
these days there are some articles about the discovery of a new portrait photography of Fryderyk #Chopin !
Surprise de taille et émotion dans le monde du piano classique ! Une image inédite et du plus grand intérêt a été découverte chez un particulier par un fin connaisseur de Frédéric Chopin, M. Alain Kohler, un physicien suisse. Celui-ci a mené une enquête approfondie avec M. Gilles Bencimon, Radio France Internationale, lui-même passionné du musicien. Les deux chercheurs sont arrivés à la conclusion qu’il s’agit selon toute vraisemblance d’une reproduction photographique d’un daguerréotype inconnu jusque-là de Chopin. Certainement effectué vers 1847 dans l’atelier de Louis-Auguste Bisson, ce cliché ne serait que le troisième portrait photographique connu du compositeur.

My Dearest and LoveliestOh, as smooth as the creases of night
And as certain as the blaze that dawn brings
Each note gives my soul wings
Like Heaven's purest ray of light
Sing my head to sleep and lure my heart awake
What risks and chances will your white keys to me make
Thoughts not bitter but sweet enlighten me
The music intoxicates me, let it flood in like a sea
My throat will increase in lustful sighs
As I shall always beg for this sweet song's reprise
Do not yet bring its demise
I know that all endings are mere lies!
Take my fleeting thoughts for a ride
Whether it may spin me in circles or around me tied
Crumble me and twist me round in awe
I promise you, my steps shan't ever take pause
Play fast now, sharp and hasty
The music blesses me, I shall let it take me
My passion rests in the notes
Let the song shield my old self like layers of cloaks
I can disappear in this
I can appear anywhere on the earth
To my ears kiss after kiss
Ah, I am uncontrolled and uncontrollable from this mirth!
Round in circles yo
The Farewell WaltzShe sat across from me, her eyes diverted and her lips curved downward at their pointed edges. Her face was a sallow mask of gray solemnity, unmoving, unpainted and deceitful. Her shoulders were rigid and her back straight as a plank, but her neck was arched and all that she did was glare at the floorboards of the parlor while her parents sat at the seats arranged beside her. There was never a time that her cheeks were not rosy with pink, but now she seemed as pale as the cloudy sky outside of the windows, and as evanescent as the rain sobbing from its merciless thunder.
Her father, with a somber gaze, stared at me from across the table, and her mother looked at me in the most miserable way. I could not tell if they pitied me or thought me as invaluable as a dulling gemstone, one that was dusty and stored away, substituted with something new and splendid as a diamond.
My fingers were stabbing at the table's surface, fingertip by painful fingertip as I stared at them. The raindrops were
