On this day in 1810

Frédéric Chopin was born on 1 March 1810, forty years before the birth of Mrs. Coates. It was said of Coates that "to her poetic temperament, Chopin's music made such a strong appeal" and that "her rendering of Chopin was different from, and practically superior to, that of other performers." ("Florence Earle Coates" in Women's Progress, May 1895)
