It was to the apartment of his compatriot - Dr. Lyszczynski - located at 10 Warriston Crescent in Edinburgh that Frédéric Chopin repeatedly and eagerly returned. Chopin was granted the nursery in a small bedroom on the first floor, where he would seek both physical and spiritual recovery through his host's homeopathic treatment and an opportunity to converse in the Polish language. This concert, given by Poland's Anna Dębowska and Scotland's John Willmett, took place in the very bedroom occupied in 1848 by the forlorn composer.
