Paderewski plays Chopin

Paderewski plays Chopin

This is the truth tradition of Europian music philosophy and interpretation...
There are technical mistakes, but this is the top of our culture...
But today It's changing with all the pianists from China and Korea...

A true superstar of his generation, Paderewski's love for Poland was almost matched by his love of America. FDR made a special exemption for him to be entombed inside the USS Maine memorial at Arlington cemetary until Poland was again free. However, Paderewski's will required that his heart stay here in America. Poland now has him back, but America has his heart.

Simply beautiful, not only the music, the silence in this performance is equally important. Nothing here is accidental, everything is mastered with the higher potential, Paderwski reigns
