It is said that Fryderyk Chopin (1810-1849) discovered the soul of the piano; he is recognised widely as the `Poet of the Piano' and a Universal Composer.
In his huge output of piano music, Chopin combined elements of Polish culture, with melodic distinction and universal themes of peace & humility in the most sophisticated and harmonically inventive ways. Today, his music reaches out to people from all over the world and he is regarded as one of the most important Romantic composers who engages millions of people from different continents and cultural backgrounds.

We mark the occasion of Chopin's 200th anniversary with an uplifting concert featuring one of the regions most celebrated Polish musicians, pianist Magda Walicka. Magda will play a concert of piano music by the celebrated Polish composer who was born 200 years ago. Bringing the Polish community together through music, this concert will also be dedicated to the recent loss of the Polish leader Lech Kaczynski and senior figures in the Polish government.
