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.
Back in London on 16 November, Chopin attended the Annual Grand Dress and Fancy Ball and Concert in aid of the Funds of the Literary Association of the Friends of Poland. At last he received a rapturous reception, although little music could be heard above the general noise. It was the composer’s last ever public performance.
