* 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.
