Audio will be available later today.

Back in the days when summer vacations were long, and taken in exotic places, Frederic Chopin found his inspiration in a village in the country. He wrote to a friend from there. Today is the first in a series of "Postcards from Composers," and pianist Frederic Chiu plays Chopin's Mazukas in C sharp minor, B major and A-flat major, published as Chopin's opus 41.
