Carnegie Concert Series: Life & Times of Chopin – Expatriate, Sat at 7:30p
After a decade in exile, Chopin struggles with the loneliness of living abroad as an expatriate, wondering if he will ever be able to return home to his beloved Poland. Chopin’s mature music is filled with nostalgia for old friends and family who he has not seen in years. He is comforted only by his music, which he infuses with the folk songs of his youth that echo in his memory. Artistic Director Yashar Yaslowitz performs part 3 of five concerts featuring the complete Mazurkas, Nocturnes, Ballades, and other works by Frédéric Chopin.
Program: Four Mazurkas, Op.33; Two Nocturnes, Op.37; Scherzo No.3, Op.39: Four Mazurkas, Op.41; Two Nocturnes, Op.48; Ballade No.3, Op.47
