Notes & Reviews:
This Chopin documentary offers careful use of the epistolary of the "protagonist", entrusting to letters written and received by the great pianist and composer, as voiced by actors. This documentary describes the places that provided the basis for the young Chopin's imagination, from the capital Warsaw to rural Poland, where he spent part of his childhood and was formed as a man and a musician, and then on to Paris, the stage setting of the second half of the his life. With Bobby McFerrin, Daniel Barenboim, Martha Argerich, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Charles Rosen, Adam Harasiewicz and others.Notes & Reviews:
