Frederic Chopin, the magician in piano music, was born on the first day of March more than 200 years ago. Being the most famous Polish composer, adored and worshiped by billions of people around the world, his birth date is the reason for delving into the Polish music this month. A true poet in music, he was an incredible pianist and his works completely transformed the way the piano is played. His music is primarily for this instrument and its tenderness and beauty could not be mistaken for any other.

The pianist Antoniya Kyril Evgenievaa have already conquered a number of prestigious stages with her performances of Chopin’s compositions. She has chosen some of his most famous waltzes, nocturnes and the dramatic and greatly virtuosic Fourth Ballade for this concert. The piano will waken up under her fingers, so the audience can enjoy and be astonished by her inspiring interpretations.
