Chopin Celebration was filmed on location at the magnificent Palace of Lancut in POland, one of the country's most sumptous residences with the beautiful surroundings and opulent interiors. In this elegant setting, soloist Marek Drewnowski gives impassioned performances of twelve of early Romantic composer Frederic Chopin's most beautiful piano concertos. Both were written before Chopin was twenty, although by this tims he was already recognised as one of Poland's great national composers.
In a remarkable career spanning many decades, Marek Drewnowski has not only performed at concerts worldwide, and made many recordings, particularly of works by Chopin, but has also had success as an actor, film producer, music festival founder, music professor and conductor.
Mr Drewnowski's performance is intercut with scenes of the Palace of Lancut - its Rococo Salon, Ballroom, Turkish Suite, Chinese Suite and Great Dining Room, with many eighteenth and nineteenth-century paintings, antiques and furniture.
