Chopin: The Dance & The Night: A Concert and Commentary with Fredrik Wanger
Thursday, June 7
10 am – 12 noon
M. Steinert & Sons Performance Hall
“Frédéric Chopin left Poland as a twenty-year-old never to return, but the lure of Polish dance forms never deserted him. In addition, his genius gave the Viennese waltz a new twist and stylistic brilliance. Sounds of the night were transformed by his pen into nocturnes replete with moonbeams, birdsong and nightmares. Let’s investigate a few of these gems together. . .”
This introduction by featured artist Fredrik Wanger leads into a unique event at M. Steinert & Son’s Natick Performance Hall at our Natick Mall showroom. Join us for a morning of beautiful music and insightful commentary on one of history’s most beloved and talented composers.
