Chopin and the Voice of Freedom


Matthew Harrison presents Chopin and the Voice of Freedom, celebrating the 100th year of Polish independence after WWI. Chopin is perhaps the greatest melodist of the Romantic age, and his music is still in the mainstream. This program is a narrative through the works of Chopin where his Polish voice rises to the surface of his music, which was essential to his country's fight to maintain an identity while being dominated politically by Russia, Prussia and Austria. This is sure to be a magical evening as Matthew takes you through some of our most beloved music with his characteristic wit, intelligence and musicianship.
