Martha Argerich (piano) plays Frédéric Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11 with the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra, conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk. The concert was performed on August 27, 2010 at the Warsaw Philharmonic Concert Hall.

Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) composed his first piano concerto in 1830. At the time, he was still living in his native Poland and was just 20 years old. The premier of Piano Concerto No. 1 took place in October of the same year at Warsaw’s National Theater, with Chopin himself playing the challenging piano part.

Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 11 was popular with audiences from the very beginning. But it also had its critics, who complained that the orchestra was only given a supporting role to the piano, which was the star of the show. And it is true that the orchestra serves merely to add atmosphere to the piano as the main part. Chopin based the piano part on the Belcanto singing of Italian operas. That’s where the many decorative artistic details come from. The musical motifs of Piano Concerto Op. 11 are based on many traditional Polish melodies. That makes the concert very memorable. It is also very romantic in character.

Almost all great piano virtuosos have played Frédéric Chopin’s first Piano Concerto. Martha Argerich, for example, performed and even recorded it many times. To everyone’s surprise, Argerich discovered new facets of the concerto each time she performed it. This is of course thanks to her virtuosity as a piano performer but also due to her temperament and her surprising spontaneity.

Martha Argerich plays Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1: The tried and tested combination for audiences to enjoy a wonderfully romantic concert!

  1. ひょっとしたら、0、5ギガくださったのは、アルゲリッチさんではありませんか。益々、アルゲリッチさんから、眼が離せなくなりました。

  2. Es verdad que con los años perdemos agilidad y nuestros movimientos se hacen más lentos. Con el piano pasa lo mismo. A los 70 no podemos hacer los malabares que hacíamos a los 25, pero a cambio ganamos en sensibilidad y ponemos más alma en lo que hacemos.
    En esta actuación de la gran Martha, hay menos agilidad que cuando interpretó el mismo concierto en el año 70 (la grabación está aquí, para el que quiera comparar), incluso sonidos poco claros, pero con todo, es infinitamente más conmovedora que entonces, y si la música trasmite sentimientos, esta interpretación trasmite toneladas.
    Cuando Kissin a los 12 años tocó en Rusia este concierto (1984), era electrizante; el perfecto niño Ruso, cumpliendo a la perfección su tarea. Cuando debutó en América, pocos años después, seguía siendo electrizante. El 2011 e Tel Aviv, fue sublime. Tuvieron que pasar 27 años, para que su impecable técnica estuviese al servicio del sentimiento.
    Es verdad que hay que escuchar a los jóvenes, pero los jóvenes tienen mucho que aprender de los viejos. Espero que eso suceda algún día con Lang Lang, que para show, me basta con Liberace.

  3. Chopin’s music really speaks to me and she performed so beautifully 🌚💐🎭👍🥰😍😘🎭🎭☮️☮️☮️☮️❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹❤️‍🩹🩰🩰🩰🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋🦋㊗️㊗️㊗️㊗️㊗️㊗️🦋

  4. 西元1810年生於波蘭的䔥邦,二十㱑時到巴黎求發展,39歳死於肺結核,
    臨死,吩咐家人把身體葬在巴黎,心髒帶回華沙埋葬,表示他的身體雖活在巴黎,
    他的心卻活在故鄉!靈魂則回到天父的身邊!
    他的身體埋在挙世聞名的,拉雪茲神父公墓,那裡有loo多萬個墳墓,世界名人多睡在此地!
    墓碑上有一尊希臘音樂女神,尤特碧雕像,低頭輕撫斷了絃的琴,傷心啜泣,使人心碎!
    欣賞蕭邦的曲子,尤其是夜曲,可以用這些故事,來懷念他的偉大!詩人多愁善感,其情景
    交融處,必有崇高之人生境界,䔥邦既被稱為鋼琴詩人,吾人更要從其不朽之旋律,尋找
    他的情景交融處,這個交融處是:
    蕭邦的音符,如夜空的繁星,使人安靜!
    䔥邦的小調,如天父的祝福,賜我平安!
