03.27.17 Janet LandrethAll-Chopin Concert

CSU faculty artist Janet Landreth performs a concert featuring works by the “Poet of the Piano,” Frederic Chopin, whose works capture the passion of 19th Century romanticism: poignant lyricism, chromatic expressiveness, and brilliant virtuosity. “Chopin’s music speaks to me in a very personal way, particularly after performing in Mallorca, Spain and visiting Valldemosso, the monastery where Chopin lived and contracted his final illness,” remembers Dr. Landreth. According to Byron Janis, who produced a rare documentary on Chopin, many of the piano works written in Mallorca were “gloomy and sad – they please your ear, but break your heart.”
