IN SEARCH OF CHOPIN
Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute Chicago
In this latest installment of his popular series (In Search of Mozart, In Search of Beethoven, In Search of Haydn), documentarian Phil Grabsky once again rescues a great composer from the one-dimensional myths about him. In Search of Chopin is an in-depth portrait of the Polish-born Romantic musician (1810-1849) who revolutionized piano technique and was unsurpassed at conveying deep human emotion. Director Phil Grabsky will be present for audience discussion at all screenings on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday of the first week. The 2:00 pm shows on Saturday and Sunday will be moderated by Andrew Patner, 98.7WFMT Critic-at-Large.
