Quotes & Highlights
“In his finest moments, (Felder) carries a rapt audience along on a wave of true, powerful, and wordless passion.” —Boston Globe
Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin
The Music of Frédéric Chopin
Text by Hershey Felder
Directed by Joel Zwick
Monsieur Chopin will teach a piano lesson that actually took place on March 4, 1848, just days after the February 1848 revolution. As the piano lesson unfolds, he reveals secrets about the art of the piano and composition, as well as secrets about himself.
Hershey Felder began the creation of Monsieur Chopin, prior to that of George Gershwin Alone. An actor and Steinway Concert Artist and former Scholar in Residence at Harvard University’s Department of Music as well as composer, Felder comes from a traditionally classical musical and theatrical background. His studies on Chopin have taken him across the world and include studying the composer’s history, period history, manuscripts and living in Chopin’s still existing residences. Included in the creative process, is a scholarly relationship with the United States’ foremost author and professor of Chopin Studies, Jeffrey Kallberg, a professor of music and chairman of the music department at the University of Pennsylvania.
