Chopin

Audio will be available later today.

With a bird's-eye view of the life of a composer, we tend to divide them into three parts: the beginning, the middle and the 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.
