Chopin in Spain

This series took place onFrom to
Chopin revolutionised the pianistic universe. His melodic exquisiteness and expressive profundity, combined with his idiomatic writing and an innovative use of musical forms, made him a reference for several generations of composers. As a continuation to the series “Chopin and posterity” from last season, these concerts investigate the mark he left on Spanish composition beyond the clichés associated with his stance in Valldemossa: his influence on the pianists of his time, imitation in the guitar repertory and continued existence in twentieth-century creation.
