Happy Birthday, Chopin

Posted at 10:30 AM on March 1, 2010 by Julia Schrenkler

Chopin turns 200 today, March 1, 2010. Celebrate his birthday with us!

* Hear Chopin's work LIVE today on Classical MPR. Pianist Eric Himy will join host Steve Staruch in the Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser Studio at 3:00 p.m. CT for an hour-long, all-Chopin recital.

* Listen in at 7:00 p.m. CT to catch Garrick Ohlsson in Recital described by Alison Young this way:

A lovely manor home in the tiny (population 65) village of Zelazowa Wola will be Mr. Ohlsson's concert stage and Chopin's very own 1848 Pleyel, his instrument for a program of polonaises, mazurkas, and the Ballade No. 3.

Straight from Poland to your living room.

* Share your own Chopin Performance with Performance Today. Learn how -- or just peruse other's entries -- in My Performance Today.
