A Chopin Salon

The Parisian salons of the 19th century were the venues where many of the greatest artistic names of the age gathered; from the painter Delacroix to the writers Balzac and George Sand and the musicians Liszt and Chopin.  Helicon once again collaborates with Juilliard to present a study of Frederic Chopin on the school’s early 19th century style piano.
