Join Brian Ganz as he previews the next installments of his decade-long journey at the Strathmore Music Center through the complete works of Frédéric Chopin. At the preview, entitled “The Art of the Mazurka,” Brian will play three sets of mazurkas along with other works related to the mazurka theme, including the masterful Polonaise in F-sharp minor, Op. 44, with a stunningly beautiful mazurka interlude, two nocturnes, a set of waltzes, and the extended virtuosic “mazurka fantasy” Chopin composed at age 16, the “Rondo à la Mazur, Op. 5.”
