Today marks Frederic Chopin's 200th birthday. Chopin left Poland in 1830 for a concert tour, assuming it was a short trip. But shortly after that, war broke out, and he never returned to his homeland. The last piece he ever played in Poland was his first piano concerto. Today, Daniel Barenboim performs it with Asher Fisch and the Berlin Philharmonic. Barenboim, Fisch, and Berlin all return Friday to play the second concerto. We have special Chopin programming all week, including a gala concert happening today at his boyhood home, featuring pianist Garrick Ohlsson. We'll bring you highlights on tomorrow's show.
