Description Scenes & Extras
 

Chopin Celebration was filmed on location at the magnificent Palace of Lancut in Poland, one of the country’s most sumptuous residences with beautiful surroundings and opulent interiors. In this elegant setting, soloist Marek Drewnowski gives impassioned performances of twelve of early Romantic composer Frederic Chopin’s most lyrical waltzes and the composer’s two beautiful piano concertos. Both were written before Chopin was twenty, although by this time he was already recognized as one of Poland’s great national composers.

In a remarkable career spanning many decades, Marek Drewnowski has not only performed at concerts worldwide, and made many recordings, particularly of works by Chopin, but has also had success as an actor, film producer, music festival founder, music professor and conductor.

Mr Drewnowski’s performance is intercut with scenes of the Palace of Lancut – its Rococo Salon, Ballroom, Turkish Suite, Chinese Suite and Great Dining Room, with many eighteenth and nineteenth-century paintings, antiques and furniture.
