The great composer Frédéric Chopin played his final piano concerts in Britain and wasn’t best pleased by the people, the weather or a near-fatal accident in a horse-drawn carriage.
Nor was it easy for Chopin to get his British piano pupils to pay up for their lessons. “I am sorely in need of money,” he said. “The people are crafty here. When they don't want to do something they save themselves by going to the country. One of my pupils left without paying me for nine lessons.”
