The Poet of the Piano. Frederic Chopin, one of the first piano virtuosos ever, earned such a nickname! It is thanks to Chopin that piano Romantic literature is so rich and varied. His first piano concerto will be performed by Veronika Böhmová, who charmed the audience with her playing even at New York’s Carnegie Hall. The concert will also feature Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy’s last “youth” symphony, which still refers to the composer’s great role model – Mozart. Dvořák’s Nocturne will start the evening with an almost hypnotic effect.
