About the concert:
Chopin the Patriot, Chopin the Pianist
Two of the many aspects which inform Chopin’s pianistic output, are his profound Polish patriotism, and his mastery of composing pianistically idiomatic works. This program, which begins with his tragic C minor Polonaise, and includes a number of his Etudes, and Preludes, ending with one of his white-hot Scherzos, gives ample voice to both of these aspects of his unique musical makeup. ~A.R.

This concert is the fourth in a series of five concerts during 2018 generously sponsored by:
