It reminds us that it is the role of artists to transfigure vileness, destruction and hatred in a gesture of beauty, harmony and fraternity.

Dear friends, I am delighted to share this unpublished pastel of our beloved Chopin, painted in 1831 short after set foot in Paris by a young painter, Jean de Majer.

All of my musical career has been lighten up by wonder and gifts.

This portrait is part of the former, given to me by my mother to whom I give thanks to have given me birth, dedication for the piano and a great appreciation for Chopin.
