Only two of them were published in his lifetime (Życzenie and Wojak), while some of them are lost. In 1857 the 17 then known songs were collected for publication by Julian Fontana as Op. 74. A further two songs were published in 1910. The text of the songs are original poems by Chopin's Polish contemporaries. Only "Piosnka litewska" is a translation of a Lithuanian song. The recording, on authentic period instruments, was made in Warsaw and issued by the Fryderyk Chopin Institute. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Useful links The Fryderyk Chopin Institute: Buy "The Real Chopin" collection here: Wikipedia: Imslp:,_Op.74_(Chopin,_Fr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ No copyright infringement intended.
