The 17th International Chopin Contest is coming this October. Pianists from all over the world have already taken part in the qualifying stage and are now playing their fingers to the bone, using every minute to prepare as perfectly as possible for their performance. For us – the audience and lovers of classical music – the best way to prepare for the contest is to revise our knowledge about Chopin and get a better understanding of his output.
To help you determine how much you already know, Culture.pl has prepared a quiz about Chopin and his works and life. Don’t be misled by the easiness of the preliminary questions, it gets much more complicated down the stretch. Ready?
