Stanislaw Drzewiecki - After his Chopin, encores for more Chopin.

Over to Sweden today for a live concert via Sveriges Radio with Polish Pianist Stanislaw Drzewiecki in a program of music by Arkvik and Chopin. I'm not familiar at all with Ylva Arkvik but certainly am with Chopin, and he does a wonderful job (IMHO). But don't take my word for it.

As always, this 90 minute concert is broken up between two players. The top player features the Arkvik and Part One of the Chopin. The bottom player finishes the Chopin along with encores.

And here's the rundown in case you feel like brushing up on your Swedish:

Den polske pianisten Stanisław Drzewiecki föddes i Moskva 1987 och började ta pianolektioner vid 4 års ålder. Idag spelar han över hela världen och väcker beundran för att han med sin nyansrikedom och känslighet skapar poesi vid flygeln.

Denna pianorecital inleds med ett uruppförande av Ylva Q Arkviks verk ”Capriccio quasi fantasia” i vilket hon förhållit sig till Chopins musik. Sedan följer ett program som uteslutande består av Chopins musik för solopiano.


1. Ylva Q Arkvik: Capriccio quasi fantasia, uruppförande

2. Frédéric Chopin:
a) Polonäs nr 5 fiss-moll.
b) Fem mazurkor op. 7.
c) Tre valser op. 34.
d) Fantasi-impromptu ciss-moll.
e) Scherzo nr 1 h-moll.
f) Polonäs nr 6 Ass-dur.

Nocturne ciss-moll
Polonaise A-dur
Preludium e-moll

Announcements are in Swedish and the pianist is in Polish . . . .so what's my point?
