A biography of the Polish composer and virtuoso pianist Frédéric Chopin and a critical analysis of his work by American music writer and critic James Huneker.



- Narrator of Chopin, Man and Music

Why is the narrator for this selection someone with a terribly pretentious accent, which an American listener can hardly understand?!? Would have to read the text along with listening to the streaming audio, in order to grasp what she is saying. Please find another reader for an important book like this, so we can actually hear/understand/enjoy the content instead of being annoyed. Thank you!
