Patricio Molina - Chopin Mazurka Op. 59 No. 3


RecitalPATRICIO MOLINA, PIANIST A native of Chile, the 18- year-old pianist Patricio Molina made his debut at the tender age of three appearing with the Catholic University of Chile's Orchestra on the popular television program "Venga Conmigo" (come with me). Immediate following his appearance, Patricio was awarded a full scholarship by "Amigos del Teatro Municipal", the educational funding arm of the Municipal Theater of Santiago. This scholarship enabled Patricio to study free of charge in the School for the Arts within the University of Chile for the next ten years. During this time he won the "Claudio Arrau International Piano Competition" three times (I, II and III Level), and performed concerts in Germany, Jordan and throughout Chile. Upon his arrival in the United States in 2004, Patricio entered Manhattan School of Music where he is a full scholarship student in the studio of Dr. Marc Silverman, Chairman of the Conservatory's Piano Department. His talents were quickly recognized by the New York Times which described him as "a gifted young artist" when they heard his performance on the Symphony Space "Wall-to-Wall Stravinsky" program. In 2005, Patricio was awarded First Prize in the International Piano Competition of New as well the Grand Prize as the outstanding performer in all categories of the competition. As the winner of last season's Precollege Concerto Competition, Patricio performed Saint Saens's Concerto No. 2 in G minor with the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Orchestra. Fryderyk Chopin (Polish: Fryderyk [Franciszek] Chopin, sometimes Szopen; French: Frédéric [François] Chopin; surname pronunciation in English: IPA: /ˈʃoʊpæn/, in French: IPA: [ʃɔpɛ̃]; March 1, 1810[1] -- October 17, 1849) was a Polish[2][3] composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic period. He is widely regarded as the greatest Polish composer, and ranks as one of music's greatest tone poets by reason of superfine imagination and fastidious craftsmanship.[4] Chopin was born in the village of Żelazowa Wola, in the Duchy of Warsaw, to a Polish mother and French-expatriate father, and in his early life was regarded as a child-prodigy pianist. In November 1830, at the age of 20, Chopin went abroad; following the suppression of the Polish November Uprising of 1830--31, he became one of many expatriates of the Polish "Great Emigration." In Paris, Chopin made a comfortable living as a composer and piano teacher, while giving few public performances. An ardent Polish patriot,[5] in France he used the French versions of his given names and eventually, to avoid having to rely on Imperial Russian documents, became a French citizen.[6][7][8] After some ill-fated romantic involvements with Polish ladies, from 1837 to 1847 he conducted a turbulent relationship with the French writer George Sand (Aurore Dudevant). Always in frail health, he died in Paris, at the age of 39, of chronic pulmonary tuberculosis.[9] Chopin's extant compositions were written primarily for the piano as a solo instrument. Though technically demanding, Chopin's style emphasizes nuance and expressive depth rather than virtuosity. Chopin invented musical forms such as the ballade[10] and was responsible for major innovations in forms such as the piano sonata, waltz, nocturne, étude, impromptu and prelude. His works are mainstays of Romanticism in 19th-century classical music. His mazureks and polonaises are touchstones of Polish national classic music.
