Summary
"Inspired by Paganini's dedication to a soloist instrument, the violin, Chopin decided early in his career to write only for piano. This beautifully produced program presents a biography of the Polish-born child prodigy and composer who blended Slavic influences into his works. Sketches, paintings, and cinematic treatments of Chopin and his times complement the music. Archival footage includes Arthur Rubinstein, Alexis Weissenberg, and Byron Janis discussing Chopin's genius, as well as numerous excerpts of historical performances by Rubinstein, Janis, Victoria Postnikova, Witold Malcuzynski, Martha Argerich, and Samson François."--Container
