Chopin's Third Concerto

03/24/10 3:00PM

We'll hear a real rarity this afternoon, the seldom-played Allegro de Concert, Op. 46 by Frederic Chopin.  It is a solo piano reduction of the opening movement of a never-realized piano concerto.  It is an awkwardly difficult piece for any pianist to perform, as he or she is asked for function as both orchestra AND soloist.
