Featuring the romantic story and music of the Polish pianist-composer Fryderyk Chopin, set in Chopin’s salon where he teaches a piano lesson that actually took place in March 1848, just days after the February 1848 revolution. As the piano lesson unfolds, Chopin reveals secrets about the art of the piano and composition, as well as secrets about himself. Hershey Felder delves deep into the music and psyche of the man, considered by his contemporaries, and now by history, as the true “Poet of the Piano.” In Chopin in Paris, Hershey features some of the pianist-composer’s most beautiful and enduring music while entertaining us in his unique and theatrical style.
