Washington pianist Brian Ganz is performing all the works of Chopin over a 10-year period. This weekend, in concerts with the National Philharmonic, he plays the first piano and orchestra work in the series, Chopin's First Piano Concerto. He came to Classical WETA to converse with Marilyn Cooley about the project, his love of Chopin's music, and his approach to the intimacy of solo recitals in large halls.
