SUMMER SOLSTICE SERIES – Part 4

Saturday June 26 – 12pm Pacific/3pm Eastern

An all-Chopin recital with renowned concert pianist Daniel Vnukowski at the piano. This recital reveals the many colours of Chopin’s unique compositional language, from outright despair to pure serenity, and ends with the bravura intensity of one of his most luminous masterworks – the Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52.

Vnukowski communicates the emotions within the music. I was moved at several points throughout the recital.

ONE-TIME ONLY! Exploring the depths of Chopin’s musical genius

FREE! Join our Artistic Director on Wednesday, June 23 at 7pm EDT (EASTERN) for a special, virtual presentation featuring the eminently distinguished musicologist Dr. Alan Walker, in which we dispel many of the myths surrounding the tortured genius.

In this particular discussion, I’ll be playing the role of a snarky 19th-century German music critic who despises Chopin’s works,” says Mr. Vnukowski. “All in good humour, tongue-in-cheek, but a subtle way to get closer to the depths of Chopin’s musical genius.

We’ll be following the footsteps of Frederic Chopin and covering important topics such as musical aesthetics, Polish vernacular and interpretation as the tail-end of the composing process, with plenty of music excerpts by renowned Chopin interpreters. The event will last approximately 50 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A.

Dr. Walker’s recent landmark book Fryderyk Chopin: A Life and Times has established him as a leading authority on Chopin and his time, earning praise in such publications as:

  • New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice
  • The Sunday Times (U.K.) Classical Music Book of 2018
  • The Economist’s Best Books of 2018.

We’ll also discuss the unique journey that led Dr. Walker to a treasure trove of documents buried deep within the archives in Warsaw, his personal relationship with the music of Chopin, and a few side notes from some of the obnoxious, 19th century music critics who despised Chopin’s music!

STEP 1: RSVP using the form below (FREE).

Franz Schubert Virtual Recital

Franz Schubert Virtual Recital

*** SCROLL DOWN TO PURCHASE TICKETS ***

SUMMER SOLSTICE SERIES – Part 2

Saturday, June 19 – 12pm Pacific/3pm Eastern

Renowned concert pianist Daniel Vnukowski performs Franz Schubert’s sublime, masterful Piano Sonata D960 in B-flat major, a monumental piece that Schubert wrote during the last year of his life in 1828. The first movement is a deeply, spiritual work that begins with a soft chorale and is immediately intercepted by a trill in the low register of the piano, resembling the rumble of distant thunder. At one point during the work, we also hear a quote from Adestes Fideles, also known as O Come All Ye Faithful, an unsurprising coincidence given the heavenly nature of this movement. This piano sonata is a genuine retreat from the madness of the outside world!

This virtual recital is followed by a short Q&A session.

He didn’t simply play. He engaged.
