Chopin - With childhood abuse, drug addiction and suicide attempts behind him, James Rhodes is not your typical concert pianist. In this episode, James plays three pieces by the composer he has the most affinity with: Frédéric Chopin. He performs the monstrously difficult Etude Opus 25 No. 12, and the sublimely beautiful Prelude, Opus 28 No. 4, followed by the turbulent Fantaisie in F minor, written at the height of Chopin's love affair with George Sand.
