Precis of Professor Terence Dennis on the Young Chopin
Chopin (1810-1849) as a young man moved from Poland to France following Russian suppression of an uprising. His early work is that of a student in Poland, and a gifted and observant student is an excellent encapsulation of the music of a particular time. The Romantic period is somewhat arbitrarily defined as beginning in 1820, when Chopin was 10. The beginnings of that young genius trace the development of the Romantic Era.

Precis of Echoes and Reflections.
Professor Dennis gives examples of "Echoes" - Either old aural recordings by the composer, or predating that, cases where ornamentation was recorded as dictated so the intentions of a composer were noted. "Reflections" are more a mirror of the original. An example is  the Previn recasting into Jazz idiom the song "My Fair Lady" which originally was cast for non-singer Rex Harrison.
