"Chopin Unknown" Guest Artist Piano Duo Recital

Featuring Dr. Adam Zukiewicz and Iris Zhang

Feburary 22, 2023, 7:30 p.m.
BCPA Recital Hall 


This research performance project focuses on the study works of Chopin, “Three Learned Fugues after Cherubini,” first published in 2017 by J. Eigeldinger in the “Société française de musicology.”

After Chopin’s exploration of counterpoint, as exemplified by these study works, his music became more intricate texturally and structurally, culminating in some of his most sophisticated, complex, and popular works. “Three Learned Fugues after Cherubini” serve as a model for Chopin’s compositional development.

The entire program will include: “Fugue in A minor, B. 144 (1840-41);” “Three Learned Fugues after Cherubini (1842-46?);” “Three Mazurkas, Op. 59 (1845);” “Barcarolle in F-sharp Major, Op. 60 (1845-46);” “Ballade in F minor, Op. 52 (1842);” and “Piano Sonata in B minor, Op. 58 (1844).”
