My concept:
Chopin left the drawing - room into the meadow
I stopped hearing the piano.
Sounds from the shepherds' instruments appeared
Shepherds' music, folklore, Chopin?
Well, yes!
What is modern folklore?
Rock, country, folk, disco, jazz?
What would Frederick Chopin refer to today?
Where would he look for inspiration?

Nineteenth Century romanticists appreciated
the barbarian savagery of Chopin's music.
Contemporary man was petrified by
the unconquerable archetype of the Slavic soul.
The proud coiled melody,
the unsettling changes of the musical scales.
Sudden turnabouts and explosive colouring
Is it the incompetence of the savage Slavic musician?
Or is it someone who knew more than the contemporary man?
Chopin's piano sang.
It steered towards other dimensions
And out-stretched hand and in it a stick pointed towards the moon.
Chopin revealed through travel, solitude and changes of landscape.
Understanding of the country to which the stick pointed.
Can it be heard today?
Or only the piano music?
