"Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz performs the masterful music of his countryman, Fryderyk Chopin. Having unanimously won the 15th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw, Mr. Blechacz is a musician of consummate artistry and technical brilliance. This will be effortlessly evident as he performs Chopin’s Grande Polonaise Brillante and Second Piano Concerto, along with an all-Chopin solo recital in the concert’s second half."

Did you know?

Chopin was a great patriot, a political exile without the right to come back to Poland, which at that time was under the Russian Empire’s rule. Unfortunately his life for a couple of decades after the Second World War was presented by the way of a fairytale about the child prodigy, who became very successful in his career and having left Poland, never came back.
