In commemorating the 100th Anniversary of Regaining Independence by the Republic of Poland, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland is proud to present the piano recital “Sounds of The Polish Independence” by talented Polish pianist Marek Bracha who is here in Singapore for the very first time. Be welcomed to join in with your family and friends and experience this live, one-night-only performance! This event is free and open to the public.
Educated in Warsaw and London, Marek Bracha is considered one of the most interesting Polish pianists of his generation. Bracha began learning piano at the age of seven, specializing in contemporary and period instruments. His work is very much inspired by the renowned Frederic Chopin, a famous composer also from Poland. Pieces by Chopin along with Mozart and Szipilman will be featured in his performance. These include Chopin’s “Polonaise in F sharp minor op 44” and Beethoven’s “Polonaise in C major op 89”.
