Fryderyk Chopin was in several respects an odd composer. If one were to select some special feature in his musical style, on might settle on the strange combination of extremely daring harmony with a predilection for forms anchored in tradition. The probable explanation for this is that when Chopin composed, he was not merely content to be guided by his technical skill as a composer but also followed his pianist's instinct. This sometimes resulted in passages that are ideal for the instrument and that sound magnificent even though they defy all scholarly convention, thus representing a sort of spiritual victory over musical matter. One has the impression he was trying to force his own incurably romantic imagination into a strictly traditional model.
