In this free online concert, Anthony Marwood leads Amsterdam Sinfonietta. Pianist Hannes Minnaar lays bare Chopin’s Slavic soul in his Second Piano Concerto.
At a young age, Chopin had already created his own unique poetical world. The pianist and prizewinner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition Hannes Minnaar brings this world to life in Chopin’s lyrical and dance-like Second Piano Concerto. No less lyrical is the Suite for Strings by Janáček who, like Chopin, drew rich inspiration from Slavic folk music.
