Acclaimed Pianist Brian Ganz’s Takes a Quest with Chopin

Internationally acclaimed pianist Brian Ganz celebrates a decade into his sojourn of performing the complete works of Frédéric Chopin with “Chopin: The Growth of Genius” at The Music Center at Strathmore at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 1.

The entire concert will be marked by Ganz’s signature “musical gardening” showcasing Chopin’s growth as a composer with selected compositions that demonstrate the seed of his genius. It’s the first time Ganz has employed this technique for the course of an entire performance.

“I’m especially excited to alter this year’s concert by foraying into the technique and growth of Chopin’s musical works over the years,” said Ganz, who began his “Extreme Chopin” quest in January 2011 with a sold-out recital in partnership with the National Philharmonic at The Music Center at Strathmore.

As the Music Center at Strathmore’s orchestra-in-residence, the National Philharmonic showcases world-renowned guest artists in time-honored symphonic masterpieces conducted by Maestro Gajewski, and monumental choral masterworks under National Philharmonic Chorale Artistic Director Stan Engebretson.

For tickets, go to or call the Strathmore at 301-581-5100.
