The final chapter of the 15-part series!

The beautiful melody of Chopin, the "piano poet", colors the weekend nights. It has been three years since Chopin's all piano work series (15 times in total) began. The performance was postponed due to the influence of the new coronavirus in 2020, but 2021 will finally reach the last season. In the remaining five performances, not only famous songs but also rare songs are studded, and you can listen to concertos and chamber music. Akira Wakabayashi recalls this unprecedented year as "it was a very valuable day to quietly review my attitude toward music." Don't miss the whole Chopin performance!
