The sixth edition of "Spring with Fryderyk in Pszczyna Castle" refers to two important events this year, namely the 18th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition and the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven's birth. The inaugural concert of the "Spring" featuring Chopin's repertoire will be performed by the winners of the Fryderyk Chopin National Piano Competition in Warsaw, Andrzej Wierciński and Piotr Alexewicz. The works of Frederic Chopin will be presented in the context of Chopin's famous peers, Robert Schumann and Franz Liszt. Since Chopin greatly admired Ludwig van Beethoven, therefore referring to the composer's birthday anniversary, the concert on March 28th will feature a chamber version of Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, titled Lark. The final concert of the cycle will be filled with works by Fredric Chopin, including the most often chosen by the participants of the Chopin Competition, the Piano Concerto in E minor Op. 11.
