Chopin & Liszt by the Lake

Anna Kijanowska on Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage.

The Embassy of The Republic of Poland and The Embassy of The Republic of Hungary presented a free public concert at the Singapore Botanic Garden featuring Anna Kijanowska playing pieces from Frederic Chopin, Franz Liszt and Karol Szymanowski.

I could well understand most from Chopin but less from profound composition of Liszt and Szymanowski. It's hard to follow the difficult pieces that do not rhymes or are even unpredictable ")

Howbeit, for the love of hammered strings, it was a lovely evening after an afternoon rainfall. Cozy up in the informal setting, lying back to enjoy the piano music with songs of the nature background by birds and insects..
