Song Of The Day – 10/27/11

Song Of The Day – “Chopin: Polonaise In A Major, No. 3, Op. 40-1 “Military”” by Artur Rubinstein

The “Military Polonaise” was composed by Chopin when he was 28 years old and was his most popular melody. During the German invasion of Poland in 1939, this Polonaise was played on the radio daily as a national protest to inspire the Polish people. Nobody could play Chopin better than pianist Artur Rubinstein.
