Launch of the 1st International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments
In March, Ben James travelled to Warsaw again as a guest of the Beethoven Easter Festival, and continued the Friends links with Chopin institutions and activities in Warsaw. This trip coincided with a special gala concert for the launch of the 1st International Chopin Competition on Period Instruments to be held in September that year. The concert featured a copy of a Bucholtz piano (Chopin’s childhood household instrument) made by Paul McNulty. Ben was able to meet Paul and chat about the instrument before the concert.
