POLISH: Akademia Muzyczna przy Paderewski Symphony Orchestra zaprasza dzieci i dorosłych na spektakl muzyczny „Herbata u Chopinów.” Spotkaj się w Salonie Chopinów (ANNEX) na radosne popołudnie wypełnione muzyką, która rozbrzmiewała w domu Chopinów. 5 września 2022 – 15:00
Born Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin on 1 March 1810, Chopin was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic period. He has maintained worldwide renown as a leading musician of his era, one whose “poetic genius was based on a professional technique that was without equal in his generation”.
All of Chopin’s compositions include the piano. Most are for solo piano, though he also wrote two piano concertos, a few chamber pieces, and some 19 songs set to Polish lyrics. His piano writing was technically demanding and expanded the limits of the instrument, his own performances noted for their nuance and sensitivity. His major piano works also include mazurkas, waltzes, nocturnes, polonaises, the instrumental ballade (which Chopin created as an instrumental genre), études, impromptus, scherzi, preludes, and sonatas, some published only posthumously.
Over 230 works of Chopin survive; some compositions from early childhood have been lost. He was the first to write ballades. Some of Chopin’s well-known pieces have acquired descriptive titles, such as the Revolutionary Étude (Op. 10, No. 12), and the Minute Waltz (Op. 64, No. 1). However, except for his Funeral March, the composer never named an instrumental work beyond genre and number, leaving all potential musical interpretations to the listener. The names by which many of his pieces are known were invented by others. [The above is sourced from Wikipedia]
