Opening bars of Nocturne No.20

Chopin dedicated this work to his older sister, Ludwika Chopin, with the statement: “To my sister Ludwika as an exercise before beginning the study of my second Concerto”. First published 26 years after the composer’s death, the piece is usually referred to as Lento con gran espressione, from its tempo marking. It is sometimes also called Reminiscence.The piece was famously played by Holocaust survivor Natalia Karp for the Nazi concentration camp commandant Amon Goeth, with Goeth being so impressed with the rendition, that he spared Karp’s life.

Performer:Wladyslaw Szpilman.Wladyslaw Szpilman (Wladek) played this music in the last live broadcast for the Polish Radio on 23.9.1939 . An hour later German bombs destroyed its power supply and the Warsaw Radio closed for long 6 years.

Those old hands have been through so much.Beautiful interptetation.

anonymous asked:

I'm so excited for Jason's new short! I was skeptical about using music from Hamilton at first but he was so sweet in his video and it's gonna be so much fun (also that russian split <3). Sidenote, do you know anything about Evgenia's new programs? I thought I read somewhere that Averbukh would be working with another choreographer which would be, you know, great, but I don't remember where and how.

Thanks for asking!

I am sure Jason will use the Russian split - it seems to be his trademark :) I like the peppy tune for the Room Where It Happens, I think it will suit him well.

Evgenia’s new SP is Chopin’s Nocturne 20 (Joshua Bell version) and the FS is January Stars and The Leftovers OST. I also read that another choreographer was helping out (so fingers crossed for less Averbukh-ness). I believe it was  Daniil Gleihengause, whom I know nothing about, but maybe another reader of my blog will.
