Award-winning Polish filmmaker Jerzy Antczak directed this historical drama which focuses on the meeting of two remarkable minds. Fryderyk Chopin (Piotr Adamczyk) was earning a reputation as both a music genius and an imperious, self-important man when he met Aurore Dupin (Danuta Stenka), a beautiful but strong-willed woman who wrote about issues of gender equality under the pen name of George Sand. Chopin and Dupin entered into a passionate but volatile love affair, and their affection for one another was tempered by Chopin's arrogance and Dupin's unwillingness to compromise. The soundtrack for Chopin: Desire for Love includes performances of Chopin's music from Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax, and other noted classical artists.
