Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Washington, D.C - All Chopin Recital
February 7th, 2015
5301 Tuckerman Lane North Bethesda,
MD 20852

Join pianist Brian Ganz, a prizewinner in the Queen Elisabeth of Belgium International Piano Competition, for the fifth recital in his quest to perform all of Chopin’s works on February 7 at 8pm at the Music Center at Strathmore. Mr. Ganz, considered a leading Chopininterpreter, will explore the many facets of the mazurka dance in Chopin’s music. Chopin imbues his mazurkas with an immense range of emotions, from sweet nostalgia to mysterious longing, from bitter despair to joyful celebration. Mr. Ganz will also play the Polonaise in F-sharp minor, Op. 44; several waltzes and nocturnes; and finally the Rondo à la Mazur, Op. 5. “There isn’t much about Chopin that Brian Ganz doesn’t know... His delight and wonder in this music seem to grow, apparently without bounds, as time goes on.” (The Washington Post)
