I don't know how Poland can now claim Chopin as one of their citizen.

Chopin was half-French by birth, and spend all his adult life in Paris where he settled at 20, never to return to his country of birth.

He spent his artistic life in France which made him famous.
Poland never offered that to him.

Are you trying to tell about Chopin to any Polak ?
It´s fruitless.
Polaks think, just because he was born in Polakia he´s their jewel.
As far as I know, most of his work was done in France.
Meanwhile, Ape claims to be a half Polak, he sells Polak kielbasas in NJ.

Polaks can claim all kinds of silly things. Like the fact that many notorious criminals like Martha Stewrrt, Unabomber and Richard "Iceman" Kuklinski are not of polish origin.

Pesky, if you read anything about the composer it is painfully clear what he considered his identity to be. I'm sure you know that, you come across as an informed person who just enjoys writing inflaming comments.

Lukashenka, those people you named are about as Polish as Anthony Kiedis is Lithuanian, or Pamela Anderson is Finnish. None of these people are likely to identify with their ancestral nations.

As for me, I'm just a friendly poster who tries to set the record straight when I see ignorant comments that MIGHT influence someone.

Whatever anyone considers is irrelevant.
Most of his works was done in France, influenced by French broad, otherwise you and me wouldn´t even know about him nowadays.

It is relevant. It's true that most of his work was done in France, and he was able to develop there, but he was very much inspired about his nationalism. I'm not an expert, so I won't say any more than that.
But take Einstein for example. He did much of his work in the US, and he had better opportunity there than in Germany - but he certainly was not American

Chopin was always talking about how he was proud of his Polish ancestry and how that inspired him.

Are you sure? Most polaks would love to have a genius hermit like Kaczynski among their ranks. At least he did not become a car thief or a plumber.

Most of the posts here are quite fun, since in France Chopin is seen... Of french nationality ( his mother married a frenchman, so became french in french law: C. is son of french parents =french ), and of polish identity, as it seems he always considered himself as such.

True.

He was a French citizen who had ancestry that was half French and half Polish.

He was proud of both.

Étude Op. 10, No. 12 in C minor, known as the Revolutionary Étude or the Étude on the Bombardment of Warsaw,[1] is a solo piano work by Frédéric Chopin written circa 1831, and the last in his first set, Douze Grandes Études, dedicated "ŕ son ami Franz Liszt" ("to his friend Franz Liszt").

The 12th Étude appeared around the same time as the November Uprising in 1831. Chopin poured his emotions on the matter into many pieces that he composed at that time, the "Revolutionary Étude" standing out as the most notable example. Upon conclusion of Poland's failed revolution against Russia, he cried "All this has caused me much pain. Who could have foreseen it!"[2]

The "Revolutionary Étude" was the last piece played on free Polish radio in Warsaw before it was taken over by Germany at the start of World War II.[citation needed]

Unlike études of prior periods (works designed to emphasize and develop particular aspects of musical technique), the romantic études of composers such as Chopin and Liszt are fully developed musical concert pieces, but still continue to represent a goal of developing stronger technique.

Why is it, every time somebody composes music or anything for that matter, you dumb Polaks like to call him/her your own ?
Don´t you have a bit of self-respect in your sourceless heads ?

Can AbeUG take a Polak joke? In truth his brain is not sufficiently advanced to comprehend humor.

But still he can hawk kielbasas.
