WARSAW, CHOPIN’s BIRTHPLACE
Varsovian by his birth, Polish in his heart, citizen of the world by his talent : to quote his compatriot, the poet Cyprian Kamil Norwid. Chopin, considered the father of a number of great French composers, from Fauré to Debussy, was strongly influenced by Bach. “Bach is an astronomer who discovers the most wonderful stars … I only try to express the soul and heart of man”, said Chopin.
Georgijs Osokins, who was the revelation of the 17th Chopin International Competition in Warsaw, has since had a brilliant worldwide career with many awards including the Cross of Merit awarded by the President of the Republic of Poland. No doubt his interpretation of the music of the two geniuses will be a great discovery of this evening.
