Celebrating Euro 2012 with music from Poland and Ukraine

Opening and closing the first set of Polish and Ukranian music will be Chopin's dramatic and powerful etude which was played at the opening ceremony of the games in Warsaw. The first is an old recording from 1923 featuring Paderewski, the great Polish pianist and composer who would become the first prime minister of the Republic of Poland in between world wars. The second version is Polish composer Leopold Godowsky's reworking of the etude, making it far more complex and nearly impossible to play.

I am embarrassed by how little Bach appears on my show when you search CKCU's online database, in my defense, it only dates back 2 years, missing the first 16 years of my show! We hear two pieces, the rare and unknown keyboard fantasia which in its obsessive, anxious repetition sounds more like a piece from the 20th century, not from 1710! The second is a chorale prelude of just sublime peace and beauty.
