September 2010 - Nr. 9
Toronto, Ontario – Commemorating the bicentennial of the renowned composer’s birth,
the ROM presents Fryderyk Chopin & the Romantic Piano, on
display in the Level 3 Samuel European Galleries from October
9, 2010 to March 27, 2011. The intimate exhibition
explores the life and legacy of 19th century Polish
composer and piano virtuoso Fryderyk Chopin and the Romantic Age of music in which he played a pivotal role.
Fryderyk Chopin & the Romantic Piano features Chopin’s instrument of choice—a Pleyel grand piano—as
well as letters by his contemporaries, costume plates and
decorative arts of the Romantic Period. ROM visitors will have a
unique opportunity to view rarely displayed original musical
scores, on limited-time loan from the Fryderyk Chopin Museum, Warsaw, as
they learn about Chopin's public and personal worlds and his
contributions to an era that helped shape European history.
