Rafal Blechacz was the first Polish pianist to win the Chopin Prize since Krystian Zimerman in 1975.
Pianist Rafal Blechacz won the 2005 International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, so he's qualified to play Chopin. He was back in Warsaw this past summer to play the Barcarolle, Op. 60, and the Etude Op. 10, No. 8.
