The International Music Festival 'Chopin and his Europe'
The International Music Festival 'Chopin and his Europe'
WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
One important strand to the festival programme is historical performance - presenting works as they were originally heard, on period pianos in the possession of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute; Beyond this, what remains key to the concept of Chopin and His Europe are top-class performances of Polish music.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
