Join pianist Brian Ganz and Polish mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wór for the 9th recital in Ganz’s journey through the beloved Romantic composer’s complete works! Frédéric Chopin was without question the greatest Polish composer of all time. Although he spent only the first half of his life in Poland, much of his music reveals his deep love for- and connection to- his homeland. 
Mr. Ganz and Ms. Wór present works that give expression to this profound connection. Featured will be the Polish dances for solo piano that Chopin composed throughout his life, Polonaises and Mazurkas; the work he said he would first perform in an independent Poland, the rarely heard Allegro de Concert; and the songs he composed setting the work of the great Polish poets of his time. All of these pieces reveal how Chopin himself became the spirit of Poland.
