About the Event
Visit the incredible Palau de la Música Catalana of Barcelona for an impassioned piano concert featuring Gesänge der Frühe, op. 133 by Chopin, Schumann, Janacek and Szymanowski.
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.
