Chopin

Audio will be available later today.

With a bird's-eye view of a composer's life, we tend to divide them into three parts: a beginning, a middle and an end. From a recital of Chopin's late works, we hear the Polonaise Fantasie — and then an echo of an earlier time, with the Waltz in G-Flat. Pianist Louis Lortie is in concert at Portland State University.
