Yep. He's a member of PF, wonder if he'll pop in later or if he'll be too busy celebrating his 199th birthday. :)

Thanks for the musical interlude Eagle20, I enjoyed that.

Raise a glass for Mr Chopin. :)

Happy B-day Mr Chopin. And the note with Him was worth only 5000 zł.

Sorry I am late. Just got back from Krakow. The fountain is cold this time of year. Brr.

Chopin vodka for Chopin ;)

A man after my own heart. Wait, where is my heart?

Cheers Fryderyk! Thank you for the beautiful music you left for us.

My pleasure, Eurola.

And the note with Him was worth only 5000 zł.

At least they got my good side.

Merged: Today is the 160th anniversary of Chopin's death

Some amateur pianists (not me!) have put together an on-line recital to commemorate the great man. If you like classical music, why not go and listen on this website:

Chopin is dead, long live Chopin (in our hearts)

Very nice playing although not professional; however, the music only demands the soul, not the long fingers. :)

Mine is in Poland.

Thank you for the tribute, it is nice to know one is missed.
