Frédéric Chopin’s compositions are on the list of favourite music pieces of every pianist. Chopin’s complete works, including his miniature scores, require not only technical skills, virtuoso playing and crystal clear articulation but also a distinct sense of musicality and an ability to detect the most subtle dynamic nuances, combined with a highly cultured tone with which the artist interprets the music of the piano poet Chopin, and thus adds his or her own artistic touch to Chopin’s composition. The top class music event, performed on a restored historical piano (And Wittenz), was held on Tuesday, October 30th 2012, at the Festival Hall of the Ptuj Castle.
