About the Event

Explore the beauty of piano music at French Cathedral in Berlin, where masterworks from Frederic Chopin come to life in this incredible performance.

Frédéric Chopin has been celebrated as a master of Romanticism for 200 years. The composer himself loved to sit for hours at the piano and play to himself. A pianist with brilliant technique, he not only operated the 88 keys, but 'touched' them. We present this beautiful simplicity of his music with outstanding young pianists in the series 'Chopin pur' in the French Cathedral.
The pianist Anna Pismak was born in Saint‐Petersburg and won her first international prizes at the age of 9. Meanwhile she counts more than twenty of them in Russia, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, France and Portugal. She was selected as a recipient of the Swiss Federal Excellence Scholarship. Since her youth, she has also performed as a soloist with orchestras and has been invited by both Radio Geneva and Swiss Radio as a soloist for live broadcasts. She has been living in Switzerland for several years, where she has made her debut in the hall of the newly opened Tonhalle Zurich, among other venues. Since September 2021 Anna Pismak is a member of the Orchestra Academy at the Zurich Opera House.

French Cathedral

The French Church (Französischer Dom) is one of the three key buildings at the Gendarmenmarkt, the most beautiful square in Berlin. The church was built as a place of worship for the Huguenots, followers of the Protestant Reformed Church of France, who were persecuted in their own country and found asylum in Berlin in the reign of Frederick the Great. The French Cathedral stands opposite the German Church (or Neue Kirche), their identical domes and styles forming a stunning architectural ensemble. Unusually, in this location, 'Dom' refers not to a German 'cathedral', but to the French 'dome'. The building houses the Huguenot museum, a restaurant and a viewing platform that offers a gorgeous view of Mitte district of Berlin.

Frederic Chopin

Frederic Chopin was a Polish composer and pianist of the Romantic area (early 19th century). He wrote primarily piano solos but also piano concerts, chamber pieces and songs set to Polish lyrics. He is well-known as a poetic genius without competition of his generation. In fact, he created the concept of instrumental ballade and his performances were noted for their sensitivity and fine distinction. He spent most of his life in Paris, where he performed for the intimate atmospheres of salons. For most of his life, he suffered poor health. As a result, he died quite young at the age of 39, probably of tuberculosis.
