Chopin list

While bicentenary homages to Poland's greatest composer have already been flooding in, the big tide that leads up to the birthday on 1 March starts this evening. Artur Pizarro, fresh from personable interpretations of concertos by Ravel and Richard Strauss, launches his Chopin cycle at St John's Smith Square. You are advised to pick and mix with the Kings Place festival, kicking off tomorrow with chamber works and continuing on Friday with the first of Martino Tirimo's recitals on Friday.
