Chopin played with glass

Is it really possible to play Chopin well when not just one, but six hearts beat in time to his music? When not just two, but twelve hands toil away trying to highlight the finesse of the figures of Chopin's movements...

Chopin has become a revelation both to Glass Duo and the KV 617 Ensemble. Musical arrangements and the performing artists surprise the audience with the glass harp in the foreground. Artists believe that thanks to such projects Chopin is alive in many dimensions in the minds of music lovers. The show is different form the performances by Zimermann, Blechacz or Anderszewski, but equally intense and colourful. 


Technical requirements 
4 dynamic and 3 condenser microphones
