Odyssey in Poland & Fryderyk Chopin
Chicago
 
 
Since I first came to Warsaw, Poland in 1998, I have visited Poland several times, but this year was special. 2010 marked the bicentennial of the birth of Fryderyk Chopin. As I arrived at Warsaw Chopin Airport waiting for my luggage in the baggage claim area, there was a huge electric poster of Chopin saying "Enjoy it! This is my year."   And near my hotel I was staying, the huge poster of XVI Międzynarodowy Konkurs Pianistyczny im. Fryderyka Chopina, the 16th International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition was placed on the building.
 
 
I picked up the tickets of Chopin Competition at ticket booth of Filharmonia Narodowa in early morning. Since I had booked "Karnet" which is Full-event tickets for all Chopin Competition days, the enveloped tickets they handed to me was quite thick.
  This poster, of course, was put up at the front of Filharmonia Narodowa.
 
The Polish public television, TVP, was on standby.
