Chopin at Home:

Visit Chopin’s birthplace
Thenews.pl - Warsaw,Poland

A great way to spend your Sundays in the Polish countryside....

The 55th season of Sunday concerts in Zelazowa Wola, Chopin’s birthplace about 60 kilometres west of Warsaw, has been inaugurated with the recitals by Ewa Poblocka, one of Poland’s leading pianists of the middle generation.

The grand piano is placed in the mansion in which the composer was born. Members of the audience are seated in the salon and in the beautiful park surrounding the mansion.

The recitals are held every Sunday at 11 am and 3 pm until the end of September. There is a minibus service to Zelazowa Wola from Warsaw’s Music Academy on Sundays and Saturdays.

The programme of the Sunday recitals is available at the website of the National Fryderyk Chopin Institute www.chopin.nifc.pl (mk)
