Chopin 200

2010 is Fryderyk Chopin’s 200th birth year. In line with his bicentennial birthday, which has just passed on the 1st of March, there are numerous festivals, piano recitals and dedication concerts worldwide in commemoration of arguably, the world’s most played composer (if there’s such a title to be given). BBC Radio 3 has some live performance broadcasts that are worth a listen.

Feed yourself with a calendar of events and interesting reads over at Chopin Year Celebrations. If you stay in Europe, there’s probably not enough time to visit/watch them all.

Back here, I will celebrate it by challenging myself to his Ballades (which I have never attempted before). These days, you could drop by IMSLP for scores.
