Chopin in Stockholm

When: 
27aug'10
The Baltic Sea Festival - Östersjöfestivalen - is Scandinavia's biggest classical music festival. This year's edition puts Chopin in the spotlight on August 27, starting off with a recital by Stanisław Drzewiecki, one of the most interesting pianists of the young generation, at Berwaldhallen. Later that night, Chopin goes clubbing at Berns nightclub at "Grand Chopin Brillant"

Grand Chopin Brillant will kick off with a performance by pianist Jarosław Kaliski, playing Grande Valse Brillante E-flat major op.18, followed by DJ sets featuring Stockholm's legendary DJ Kornél Kovács and Polish electronic stars Eltron John and Jacek Sienkiewicz sampling Chopin melodies.

The premiere of the film Chopin, Where Are You?, directed by the r a k e t a Swedish art collective will take place at the festival. Produced especially for this evening, the film was shot during trips by Swedish artists to Warsaw organized by Stockholm's Polish Institute. The artists describe the work as a road film combined with a detective story.
"Chopin's Year in Stockholm is pulsing with events and we are excited that the Polish Institute in Stockholm, which is coordinating all events and maintains the Internet page, is no longer the only organiser of related events throughout Sweden", says Katarzyna Tubylewicz, Director of the Polish Institute in Stockholm. "We successfully turned Swedes on to the Chopin Year, but another year of cooperation with Östersjöfestivalen is our initiative and it was our idea to bring a modern project with DJs sampling Chopin into this classical context. Chopin's music has folk and dance roots, making it perfect for sampling and dance", continues Tubylewicz.
The events at the Baltic Sea Festival were organised in cooperation with Polish Institute in Stockholm and Swedish partners the Berwaldhallen Philharmonic and Berns Club.
