Sharpen Up Your Chopin
Friday 1 – Sunday 3 July 2016
Course No. 3189

More than 260 years after his death the magic of Chopin is still as potent as ever. No music feels so grateful under the pianist’s fingers, yet it requires great subtlety, delicacy, fire and virtuosity to make its full effect. Explore this uniquely special composer through his large and small works alike.
Julian has created a list of suggested repertoire which you might find useful in your preparations.
