FRÉDÉRIC CHOPIN Piano Concert
Part of the MEET THE NEW AUTHORS event series
April 23 19:00 – Yehudi Menuhin space, European Parliament
MEP Marietje Schaake and MEP Julia Reda invite you to a performance of works by Frédéric Chopin
in the European Parliament.
Classical music forms an important part of our common cultural heritage. Even though many of these works are hundreds of years old, copyright on recordings can limit public access
The Open Goldberg Project
was started to address this problem. Supported by crowd funding, they released high-quality recordings and scores of Johann-Sebastian Bach's Goldberg Variations
and Well-Tempered Clavier
into the public domain. Their newest project: Liberating the works of Frédéric Chopin.
Hear from Robert Douglass, the project's director about the reasons and challenges of updating classical music to the 21st
century and enjoy an interpretation of the works by celebrated pianist Kimiko Ishizaka
We're looking forward to seeing you at the event and thank you for your registration
If you require access to the Parliament, please send full name, date of birth, nationality, and your passport/ID card number to firstname.lastname@example.org
by April 16 noon.
