in the United Kingdom, then subsequently spread throughout Western Europe, North America, Japan, and eventually the
rest of the world.

The Industrial Revolution marks a major turning point in history; almost every aspect of daily life was influenced in some
way. Most notably, average income and population began to exhibit unprecedented sustained growth. In the two centuries
following 1800, the world's average per capita income increased over tenfold, while the world's population increased over
sixfold.[2] In the words of Nobel Prize winner Robert E. Lucas, Jr., "For the first time in history, the living standards of the
masses of ordinary people have begun to undergo sustained growth ... Nothing remotely like this economic behavior has
happened before".[

FREDERIC CHOPIN was a virtuoso pianist who revolutionized the world of piano music forever. He wrote no symphonies,
no masses, no operas, and no string quartets; he was the master of small form. The program examines how Chopin
changed the world's perception of how the piano should, and could, be played through some of the most beautiful and
poetic music ever written.

Frédéric Chopin was one of the greatest pianists of his day. Every single piece of music he wrote used the piano. The
name Chopin doesn't sound very Polish because Chopin's father was born in France. Even though he was fiercely proud of
being Polish, Frédéric Chopin wound up moving to France, and never returned to Poland.

PIANO TECHNIQUE (Primary technical studies: The Virtuoso Pianist (Le Piano virtuose) by Charles-Louis Hanon, is a
compilation of sixty exercises meant to train the pianist in speed, precision, agility, and strength of all of the fingers and
flexibility in the wrists. First published in Boulogne, in 1873, The Virtuoso Pianist is Hanon's most well-known work, and is
still widely used by piano instructors and pupils.
