The year is 1831 – the height of the Enlightenment Period in Europe. Political unrest is fervent but the arts are flourishing. The place is Paris and the setting is an intimate salon. Many composers were active in this place and time – such as Liszt, Bizet, and Paganini. However, one newly arrived gentleman from Poland truly transformed how we listen to piano music and how music for piano was composed. Chopin’s poignant music was first heard in salon settings and we are happy to let you know about two events in our community that will be doing just that!
Esteemed pianist Sunny Qu will perform two house concerts that will entirely feature Chopin’s music. Entrance is by donation and this will be an opportunity to hear this music as it was originally intended to be heard! Come be part of this exceptional experience.
