Bored !

Paris 1844: Chopin’s life is boredom and weariness despite the efforts of George Sand.

Sand: Well Frédéric, you haven’t got much energy!

2)      Chopin: … bored…

3)      Sand: Play the piano.

Chopin: It’s out of tune.

Sand: Compose music.

Chopin: I don’t have any ideas.

Sand: Go for a walk.

Chopin: It’s raining and cold!

Sand: Play with the dog.

Chopin: It has fleas!

Sand: Read my last novel.

Chopin: Very boring…

Sand: …

Hum, I’m thinking of something but…

Chopin: You only think of that! I’m too weak!

 4)      Sand: Oh, mister Pleyel, what a pleasant surprise! It happens that Frédéric is bored to death lately.

 5)      Chopin: Huh?! I can’t! I… I’m very busy!

 6)      Chopin: I wasn’t bored, I was just thinking!

Chopin at Calder House, Scotland

August 1848, a few miles from Edinburgh: Chopin stays in the manor of Calder House, owned by Jane Stirling’s brother-in-law Lord Torpichen. “The lord is excellent and the park is beautiful”…*

    1)  Lord Torpichen: You have here the most magnificent view you can dream of.

Chopin: Certainly


    2)  Lord Torpichen: Look at this wonderful rose garden. The flowers’ scent wafts through the rooms.

Chopin: "Mignonne, allons voir si la rose qui ce matin avait déclose, sa robe de pourpre au soleil"… (Poem by Ronsart)


    3)  Lord Torpichen: They are yellow.

Chopin: Obviously…


    4)  Lord Torpichen: Isn’t it majestic these trees waving in the wind?


    5)  Chopin: It’s delightful. I will compose for you a piece about the reflections of the beautiful trees of Calder House.*

    6) Chopin: I hope to see this so fervently described landscape…. As soon as the fog will clear!


*Sentences from Chopin’s letters.

I made up a character named Melnia, and I did make her french... I had no idea the name actually existed.

Hi! It does not exist, i created it as a username, based on the deformation of my name, melanie. Anyway, it's funny you made it too and for a french character ! ;)
