Czesław Czapliński's photo exhibition: Chopin's Steps in Warsaw and the Mazovia
Category: Visual arts
Organized by: CHOPIN 2010 Celebrations Office

Czesław Czapliński's photographic exhibition: "CHOPIN'S Steps in Warsaw and the Mazovia"

Fryderyk Chopin spent half of his short, less than 40-year long, life in Warsaw and the Mazovia (Mazowsze) region of Poland. This period was crucial in shaping his future artistic career, with Mazovia’s landscapes being ever since present in his music. That is why, Czapliński spent the last two years travelling around Warsaw and Mazovia and visiting places where the composer had spent his childhood, studied and gave concerts.
