Brian is featured in the November issue of What’s Up Annapolis’s Undercover Stars Among Us.
“Noted for his brilliant performances of the compositions of Polish composer Frederic Chopin, Ganz explains, ‘[Chopin] feels to me like the native language of my soul…His language, the way he writes a melody—his harmony—in unexpected ways, sounds inevitable.’ And, if you’ve attended one of Mr. Ganz’s performances you know the magnetic energy and passion he brings to the music. The audiences remain spellbound while Mr. Ganz weaves his web of beautiful music. “
We are so grateful for the many Chopin fans that came out to support Brian during his Feb. 10 concert! It was a full house in the 2,000-seat Strathmore Hall. Join us next year, Feb. 2, 2019, as Brian continues his quest to perform the complete works of Chopin, and keep an eye out for upcoming concerts by signing up for his newsletter at http://www.brianganz.net/subscribe-to-newsletter/.
Brian continued his unprecedented journey through the complete works of Frédéric Chopin as part of “National Philharmonic: Brian Ganz Plays Chopin's Hidden Gems & All-Time Favorites” at The Music Center at Strathmore, playing romantic works by the composer that are virtually unknown, as well as some of his beloved works. Ganz began his “Extreme Chopin” quest in January 2011 at a sold-out recital in partnership with the National Philharmonic at Strathmore. Check out his meet-and-greet below.
