Frederick Chopin's visit to Manchester in 1848 came at a poignant moment in his life. He had left Paris for London after the February Revolution, and despite ill health had embarked on a visit to Scotland at the urging of his aristocratic pupil Jane Stirling.
His concert in the Gentlemen's Concert Hall in Manchester linked him again to Charles Halle, the pianist and composer George Osborne, the Schwabe family, and other friends from Paris.
But all was not well with him, and the next autumn, after concerts in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and a final recital at London's Guildhall, Chopin returned to Paris. Here he died, on 17 October 1849, and following a funeral in the Madeleine was buried in the Pere Lachaise cemetery.
