  • Kavod Senior Life & Active Minds Present: Chopin and the Piano

    Friday, August 27 at 1:00 pm at Kavod Senior Life

    “Hats off, gentleman — a genius!” So raved Robert Schumann when he first encountered the music of a shy young man from Poland named Frederic Chopin. And who could resist the sweep and gracefulness of all those memorable works for piano? Unlike other composers of the day, Chopin showed no interest in the more fashionable world of opera and orchestra —instead focusing solely on piano pieces that mixed moonstruck melodies with fiery virtuosity. In this Active Minds program, we’ll hear some of his hits as we trace the short life of a true romantic with glorious musical gifts.
