Żal – A tribute to Frédéric Chopin
Charity gala in favor of the R. Steiner School of Minusio.
A journey through the life and work of composer and piano player Frédéric Chopin. By mixing contemporary theatre & dance and a piano recital, the artists deal with the main topics in Chopin’s life: his homesickness for Poland, his inspirational force while composing, his illness, his shyness towards the audience.
The word “żal” means ‘a grief-stricken regret after an unavoidable loss and a resignation to destiny’. It stands for the general attitude towards Chopin’s life, as expressed in his music.
André Desponds, piano
Andrea Herdeg, dance
