Beethoven 250 during Chopin 2020 - The Gala Concert Inaugurating the 18th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw
The 18th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw - for this event pianists and music lovers from all over the world waited longer than usual. From the edition in 1955, the 5-year time interval between the Competitions was uninterrupted. Thus, the 18th edition was originally supposed to take place in October 2020. Hence, in the shortened version, the Competition is called #Chopin2020. A positive aspect of the postponement of the Competition is certainly the coincidence with the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the foundation of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute - the organizer of the Competition, which on February 3 this year celebrated its 20th anniversary.
