3rd@1st “Chopin, the Poet” Concert on Sat. 2/17 at 4pm

February 12, 2024

As a pianist, I have been playing Chopin since my very young age, and from time to time I have been performing his music. But it is my first time to program all Chopin works on one concert. I really like my program and I have discovered a lot through practice and study. Yesterday, I played my program for my dear friend, David Kasunic, a great Chopin scholar, and we had a wonderful time discussing “Chopin”. He answered my questions from the scholar point, and it was very helpful.

The concert is on Sat. 2/17/24 at 4pm at First United Methodist Church of Pasadena. It is one of 3rd@1st concert series, and the admission is free! I am very much looking forward to performing this Saturday. My program is:


Waltz Posthumous in E Minor                                                            Frédéric Chopin (1810 -1849)
Waltz Op. 69 No. 1 in A flat Major
Waltz Op. 42 in in A flat Major

Impromptu No. 1 Op. 29 in A flat Major

Barcarolle Op. 60 in F sharp Major

short intermission

Mazurka in B Minor, Op. 33, No. 4
Mazurka in A flat Major, Op. 59 No. 2
Mazurka in C sharp Minor, Op. 63 No. 3

Ballade No. 4 in F Minor, Op. 52

I hope you will join me at the concert.
