Chopin plays for the Radziwiłłs, 1829. Painting by Henryk Siemiradzki, 1887.

If you happen to be interested in Polish history, the Radziwiłł‘s might be worth reading about, as long as you don’t try to pronounce the name.  😐

    1. We are a little ahead of you in that regard, while back in the old homeland it was already time to get up when the post was published, haha. Glad you enjoy it. Have a wonderful Sunday (which by now surely has arrived)!

  1. I love Chopin! No. 20 in C sharp minor is one of my favorite pieces of all time. It’s fascinating how each musician imprints their personality in the interpretation, so you end up rediscovering the composition in a new light each time.
