This animated film concert with live solo piano created by Oscar® award-winning creators BreakThru Films introduces the music of Chopin with a set of unique animations. The main feature, Magic Piano (30 minutes) tells the story of Anna and Chip-Chip’s adventure of discovery aboard a magic, flying piano. This is presented alongside The Chopin Shorts; collections of 2-3 minute films each set to Chopin études.
