FREDERIC CHOPIN CONCERT AT THE PAINTING GALLERY

Evening city-rama tour (every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening).

It was a genius of Frederic Chopin that made Poland famous in the music world. It is the mazurkas, etudes, polonaises and scherzos that have become a test and measure of any pianist's talent. Your stay in Warsaw gives you an excellent opportunity to sample his music in his native country. F. Chopin Piano Recitals are organized at the former Bank of Poland and Stock Exhange building, one of the best examples of Neo-Classicism- designed by Antonio Corrazi and built between 1825-1829. Currently the building houses a collection of European paintings dedicated to Pope John Paul II and donated by Mr & Mrs Porczyński. Concerts are hold in a dome-covered arcades lining the interior.

Frederick Chopin, the most outstanding Polish composer and one of the world's greatest musicians, was born in Żelazowa Wola near Warsaw on 22 February 1810. He composed more than 230 music pieces, which are still being played all over the world. Surrounded by friends he died in Paris on 17 October 1849.

Enjoy an unforgettable evening that can be the highlight of your stay in Warsaw. One of the best pianist from the Warsaw Music Academy will take you on a journey through F. Chopin compositions.
