Much of his music is deeply patriotic and infused with a love of his native Poland. He particularly exploited dance forms like the waltz, the mazurka and the polonaise, and he also developed the nocturne into a significant form of piano literature. His works have been heard in many contexts including ballets such as Le Sylphides, Dances at a Gathering and A Month in the Country; films like The Pianist, The Truman Story, A Song to Remember and many others, as well as popular songs such as I'm Always Chasing Rainbows, Till the End of Time and Could It Be Magic. The 50 Best Series offers an impressive assortment of well-known and beloved classical repertoire featuring performances by great artists from Menuhin to Kennedy, Callas to Te Kanawa. Each release on the 50 Best Series is grouped thematically across 3CDs. Spectacular value and an amazingly low price on one of the world's most respected classical labels.
