The Chopin Competition 60 Years Ago – An Interview with Hanna Radwan
At Culture.pl we spoke to a long-time friend who knows everything about piano and Chopin Competition. Hanna Radwan agreed to describe how the preparations for the Chopin Piano Competition looked 60 years ago, and how different it was to be a pianist at the time. She was one of the favourites among the group preparing for the 5th Competition in 1955 but she had to cancel her appearance due to severe illness. Eventually she never participated in the competition but had a marvellous career and gave counless recitas all over the world.
