- Frederic Chopin – Grande Polonaise brillante, Valses, Mazurkas.. Programme intégral du film « Le Pianiste »
| Elio di Tanna
Award‐winning French pianist Elio di Tanna is a successful soloist and chamber musician, particularly at home in the Romantic and early 20th century repertoire.
Located in a secluded corner of Paris’ historical fifth arrondissement, also known as the Latin Quarter, this small, quaint church is truly a hidden gem. Constructed in 1733 in true Corinthian style, the church was used by different religious orders until the late 19th century, when it became a centre for the Catholic social movements founded by Robert and Albert de Mun. The interior is classically embellished with an impressive collection of paintings. Church Saint-Ephrem is a popular venue for classical music concerts, as its cosy, intimate atmosphere and great acoustics attract both locals and tourists.
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.

Pascal Mantin played some of my favourite Chopin works beautifully. The experience was enhanced by the ambience of Église St Ephrem by candlelight.

This was one of the most passionate and intense concerts i ever saw. The pianist , Elio Di Tanna plays marvellously several Chopin pieces and the audience applauded him for long 10 minutes. This artist merits to perform also in the most famous music temples around the world. He is talented .Bravo ! Emilio Antonini Trieste Italy

Das Konzert war das Geld allemal wert: Ein hervorragender Pianist mit einem guten Programm in einem (nach Abschalten der elektrischen Beleuchtung) angenehmen Ambiente und in einer Kapelle mit passender Größe und wirklich guter Akustik. Die Organisation einschl. der Abwicklung der Bezahlung und der Zusendung der Online‐Tickets war problemlos.
