Happy birthday, Chopin

March 1, 2010

There are several major musical anniversaries to celebrate this year, and today marks the first of them: it is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frederic Chopin.  Like most people, I love Chopin’s music, and it seems fitting to play a little of it in celebration.  Here is my favourite Chopin pianist, Artur Rubinstein, playing the Nocturne in D flat major, Op.27 No.2.
