GEORGE SAND KILLED CHOPIN 

Everyone knows that Chopin was doomed to die from tuberculosis, but that's not what the social set in Paris knew in those days.

It was common knowledge that Chopin was in love with novelist George Sand, and even more common knowledge that Sand was a social climber bent on attracting every powerful man she could to further her insatiable ambition.

Chopin was just one more casualty on her way to immortality, but he was fool enough to fall in love with her.

A list of her conquests reads like an artistic who's who of European culture at the time.

Liszt, Victor Hugo, Dumas (pere) and the painter Delacroix were all the targets of her naughty network, but some say she failed with every one.

Many writers of the day remarked that Sand was a woman of low morals, and expressed surprise that a genius such as Chopin could have fallen for her. Many found her heavy and obvious.

Chopin and Sand took up residence at her estate at Nohant, where Chopin composed many of his great works.

And how did George Sand receive these great masterworks? She had soundproofing panels installed so she wouldn't have to listen.

Pictures of Nohant reveal a sylvan fairyland, with appealing formal gardens and a large wild area in the English manner. At least Chopin may have had a few years of peace there.

Finally Chopin had enough of her affairs, and two years before he died, he left her.

Chopin was never with any woman again, and died alone, miserable and sick.

And yet he left us with one of the greatest musical legacies ever written.

Their story reads like a Hollywood movie.
