Rafał Blechacz at Salle Pleyel, November 11, 2011 (Video)

The video from"Chroniques de l'Ambassadeur", produced in commemoration of Polish government presidency of EU Council in the 2nd half of 2011.




You can see some fragments from the concert at Salle Pleyel on November 11, the independence day of Poland, when Rafał Blechacz played Chopin's concerto in F minor with Sinfonia Varsovia directed by Grzegorz Nowak;

Blechacz playing Polonaise op.53, Mazurka op.17-4, Concerto in F minor, giving interview about playing in Paris and receiving warm applause from the audience.


".....Paris is the town where Frédéric Chopin spent half of his life and it’s a magical place, charming and romantic. This is one of my favorite cities in Europe and in the world. I’m back here with pleasure because I feel I already have my audience who comes to hear my concert. And I’m pleased to be back to play new works. It’s a great honor to play Chopin's music, on the day of the national holiday of Poland, at this time, patriotic note sounds very strong. It’s a great honor as a Pole and as an artist to discover Polish music abroad. It’s a great day...."


This is one of the videos from "Chroniques de l'Ambassadeur".

**It's intriguing but the audio quality is uneven during the concert :(



(Thanks to Konstancja for the first discovery♫)
