Woodward Ends Historic Chopin series

image PDF version available here

The Sydney Festival’s programming of Roger Woodward performing the complete works of Chopin was one of its best decisions.  Woodward embarked on this historic series in January 1983.  Many of his admirers who were present at that and subsequent recitals were back to celebrate with him the close of this extraordinary enterpriese.  ... Bravo Roger Woodward!  Not only has he given us some memorable concerts, but also a sense of the epic and, above all, indisputable proof of the breadth and depth of Chopin’s achievement.
