A Critic's View of John Field and Frederic Chopin...

"Where Field smiles, Chopin makes a grinning grimace; where Field sighs, Chopin groans; where Field shrugs his shoulders, Chopin twists his whole body; where Field puts some seasoning into his food, Chopin empties a handful of Cayenne pepper. In short, if one holds Field's charming romances before a distorting concave mirror, so that every delicate expression becomes a course one,one gets Chopin' work. We implore Mr. Chopin to return to nature."
And so on and so forth...
