The paper explains and illustrates that each composer supplied the musical paradigms for their distinctive eras. This paper discusses that Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) is considered as the culminating influence of the Baroque period. The author believes that Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827) is the supreme pianist of the Classical period. The paper states that Frederic Francois Chopin (1810-1849) is one of the most original and influential musicians of the nineteenth century.

From the Paper:

"As early as 1831, Chopin expressed his wish to create a new musical world characterized by musical poetry of an extraordinary elegant nature, mostly represented by his piano pieces, such as his Polonaises (Adante spianato and Grande Polonaise Brilliante Op. 22 and Polonaise in Ab Heroic Op. 53). Chopin's harmonic language was also completely original, symbolized by complex chromatic harmonies mingled with the drones of fifths and modal scales of traditional Polish folk music. His fifty-five Mazurkas displayed all the intricacies of his style. It has often been compared to the virtuosity of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier."
