VPR Classical Celebrates Chopin's 200th
Whether or not March 1st is the actual birth date of Frederic Chopin is a point of some contest, but his birth year, 1810, is indisputed. Join VPR Classical for an entire day devoted to his music.
Chopin's birthday is generally celebrated on March 1st, though the actual date is a little unclear. We do know for sure he was born in 1810, so we're siezing the opportunity of his bicentennial to feature lyrical works like his Barcarolle, Scherzo #4, and Fantaisie-Impromptu.
