Frédéric Chopin: Piano Concerto no. 1 in E minor op. 11

Chopin is the number one name in piano music. Himself a pianist, he wrote extremely idiomatically for the instrument and influenced a great many later composers. Chopin’s Piano Concerto no. 1 is here performed by Janne Mertanen, one of Finland’s finest pianists. The Concerto is a display of brilliance with the piano holding centre stage throughout. Sibelius’s suite Lemminkäinen comprises four movements, the best-known of which is the second one, Swan of Tuonela.
The length of the concert is approx. 2 h.
