Music Movie Night: The Art of Chopin

We cordially invite all classical music lovers of classical music to a screening of The Art of Chopin (2010), a documentary directed by Gérald Caillat.

Produced on the occasion of the 200th birthday of Frederic Chopin, this documentary not only follows the journey of his brief life, but also features some of the greatest pianists playing excerpts from his best-known works. This includes rare footage of Martha Argerich, Evgeny Kissin and Krystian Zimerman. Garrick Ohlsson, the winner of the 1970 Chopin International Competition, guides viewers through the documentary and explains his own view of Chopin’s genius. As an encore, the screening will end with a recorded performance of Chopin’s first piano concerto, performed by  Ohlsson with the Warsaw Philharmonic under the baton of Antoni Wit.
