20-01-2012 12:00:00 20-01-2012 12:00:00 America/New_York The Concert (or The Perils of Everybody) Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849) was born in Poland. He was one of the most important innovators for the piano, both in terms of composition and playing style. As a pianist he was mostly self-taught, and since he did not like to give public performances, his substantial reputation was based on a very few concerts. Chopin influenced future composers, especially those of the French and Russian schools. The musical level he attained made possible future piano innovations, such as those of Debussy. Other Chopin ballets choreographed by Jerome Robbins are Dances at a Gathering (1969), In the Night (1970), and Other Dances (1976). http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=92441 Joyce Theater Joyce Theater
