The 2017 Bard Music Festival explores Chopin’s complex and enigmatic sides.

The festival ventures beyond Chopin’s chronological career, and through concerts, panels, and lectures, addresses how attitudes to the composer have changed since his death in 1849, how we hear Chopin today, and, most importantly, why he still matters.

August 11–13: Chopin, the Piano, and Musical Culture of the 19th Century

August 18–20: Originality and Virtuosity
