An Evening with Jane Stirling
We proudly present our official trailer of "An Evening with Jane Stirling". The event entitled "Chopin the Ungrateful" is a tribute to Jane Stirling and includes narration by Marek Kucharski, illustrated with photographic and video material, readings of Chopin's letters and music of Chopin's works performed live by Anna Dębowska. It will conclude with a short recital of Anna playing selected pieces that are about to appear on her new album.
To entitle this event "Chopin the Ungrateful" may seem provocative. And so it is. This project is indeed intended to inflame emotions as well as to bring to life those facts related to Chopin?s life that literature appears to have so wrongfully dismissed - the contribution which Jane Stirling made to help Fryderyk Chopin in the ultimate years of his life, as well as after his death, to preserve his legacy, which we have been so lucky to enjoy in the last two hundred years. Alas, Chopinologists may have been too interested in the often romantic relationships this unquestionable musical genius maintained with his female admirers. Consequently, they might have shown too little interest in those who successfully evaded the limelight and truly provided help for Chopin when he really needed it.
It is simply too bad that these facts have undeservedly fallen into oblivion.
