This beautiful souvenir coin was struck to commemorate the XVII edition of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition.
Chopin’s formidable talent, manifested in highly emotional spirit and impeccable form of his works, quickly brought him fame all over Europe. The composer, often referred to as the Poet of the Piano, enriched the harmonic palette of his music by introducing into his compositions modes and features of the traditional Polish folk music.
Chopin was an outstanding personality. His style, recognizable from the first chords, is extremely abundant in means of expression. Being a child prodigy, he created his works from an early age. Gradually, the musical texture of his works was evolving into ‘brilliant’-style virtuosity, and finally reached its pinnacle in his large-scale works, e.g. in Piano Sonata No. 2 in B minor and Piano Sonata No. 3 in H minor. His works, initially rejected by the audience, over time have been widely acclaimed as real masterpieces of a genius.
