His fellow composer Robert Schumann once said of Frederick Chopin: "Hats off gentlemen - a genius." Nothing more needs to be said.
Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska is known around the world as the master interpreter of Chopin.
In the year 2010, which marked the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth, she embarked on an extended international tour to celebrate his life and music.

about the composer she has adored since she was a girl.
