This event is recommended by the Polish Cultural Institute New York.

The metropolitan Washington area’s favorite pianist, scholar, world-renowned instrumentalist and passionate devotee of Frederic Chopin Brian Ganz continues his quest to play every note ever written by Frederic Chopin live in concert with his 13th appearance in recital on the National Philharmonic stage. Ganz’s phenomenal interpretation of pieces from Chopin’s catalog continues to memorably knock more and more works by the Polish Romantic composer from his to-do list in the project he calls “Extreme Chopin.” Experience the passion and precision of a master, and witness a man on a mission.

Why We Love This Concert

  • A fan favorite, Brian Ganz is back to perform his annual Chopin concert!
  • Almost all of Chopin’s compositions are for piano solo, but this concert features his complete chamber works that include cello and violin.
  • Ganz is joined for this concert by New York Philharmonic’s principal cellist Carter Brey and NatPhil’s concertmaster Laura Colgate.
  • This is Ganz’s 13th performance with NatPhil in his Chopin series.
