Fascinating website about the friend and pupil of Chopin, who edited many of Chopin's posthumous works.

Thanks for the link! We must never forget that without the help of Fontana some significant compositions of Chopin might be never found or published. I can't imagine a world without the fantasie-impromptu :lol:.

The only pity is that Fontana's editions are very often different from Chopin's manuscript, and I don't know which to believe and follow.
