Happy birthday Chopin

Great composer-pianist Frédéric Chopin was born on this week  in 1810.

Here’s a beautiful performance of one of his most profound slow movements from a piano concerto with one of my favourite pianists Artur Rubenstein..Chopin wrote the piece before he had finished his formal education, at around 20 years of age.
