Our 2019 -2020 season is devoted to exploring our fascination and love for Frederic Chopin.
Feeling and playing his eternally powerful music, sharing our feelings with the audience why we are so drawn to it as pianists.
Plus a sojourn through parts of his life, including the playing of music by other composers that influenced Chopin’s own work… and his invaluable influence on compositions by others that followed him.
As our series progresses, we will present Chopin’s special compositions for other instruments with piano.
