Notes & Reviews:

Celebrating the Chopin Bicentennial, this program was filmed on location at the magnificient Palace of Lancut in Poland, one of the country's most sumptuous residencies with beautiful surroundings and opulent interiors. In this elegant setting, soloist Marek Drewnowski gives impassioned performances of twelve of early Romantic composer Frederic Chopin's most lyrical waltzes and the composer's two beautiful piano concertos. Both were written before Chopin was twenty, although by this time he was already recognized as one of Poland's great national composers.

Chopin Celebration was filmed on location at the magnificent Palace of Tancut in Poland, one of the country's most sumptuous residences with beautiful surroundings and opulent interiors. In this elegant setting, soloist Marek Drewnowski gives impassioned performances of 12 of early Romantic composer Frederic Chopin's most lyrical waltzes and the composer's two beautiful piano concertos.
