About

Nikolai Demidenko and Evgeny Kissin perform Chopin's piano concertos in Warsaw on the occasion of the 200th birthday of Frédéric Chopin.

Few composers have left in the classical music repertoire a legacy such important as Frédéric Chopin's one. His works for piano solo, including sonatas, mazurkas, waltzes, nocturnes, polonaises, études, impromptus, scherzi and preludes have all been studied and performed by generations of piano students who discovered with them the idiosyncratic sensibility of the Romantic style and its iconic rubato. Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Op. 21 – being historically the first to be composed in 1830 – and Piano Concerto No. 1 in E Minor, Op. 11 bear both witness of the influence exerted by the London School. Thanks to the impulse given by great musicians such as Clementi and Dussek, this school progressively transformed the classical idioms of the last century into the Romantic musical language used by Chopin and his contemporaries.
