featuring Robert Buxton, Lecturer in Piano, Department of Music
Frédéric François Chopin set the bar for all pianist composers of the Romantic era. His etudes, waltzes, and other compositions are familiar to many, but what are some of the stories behind their creation and what are the keys to understanding what made Chopin so special? Piano maestro Robert Buxton will perform his pieces and discuss the life and art of the man whose name is nearly synonymous with his instrument.
