"So it's case by case. But in show pens case, the instrument was paramount to how the pace turned out. There's more intimate with Paul kill days. He takes us on the search for the instrument that transformed music, which he writes about in Chopin's, piano. It's travel with Rick steves. We're entering the world of composer Frederic Chopin right now travel with Rick steves with our guest. Paul killed day Paul's a conductor and writer from Melbourne Australia for many years, he headed arts festivals and performance than us in England. And he's authored several books about composer Benjamin Britten in pulse. Historical narrative Chopin's piano, in search of the instrument that transformed music, even the piano is have stories to tell us. We learn what the composer had to endure to produce revolutionary music for the romantic age, Paul when we think about music and travel after all this is at travel show. I love the way composers are inspired by their heritage by their environment by their love. And when we think about Chopin, it's a big combination of that. When you go to Warsaw, you see memorial to Chopin the beloved composure of the country, even though he spent most of his career outside of Poland. And it's the willow tree blowing. Over his head in this big black statue have you been there and seen that statue? Yes. Indeed. Yes. What I've heard is that it's when he was in Paris. They'll never forget the sound of the wind blowing through the willow trees in his homeland. And he kind of Poland with him. An interesting thing about Chopin is that not so much in his lifetime. But in the second half of the nineteenth century different countries definitely wanted to claim him. So Russia and Poland wanted to claim him Paris thought it should be able to claim him Germany thought that it should be able to claim him because Germany was the custody, and if you like of high art and great romantic movement in music and England also had a York want him Milkin never kind of really knew what to do with him. And not least. Because of course, Joe son wrote a memoir of the time, you know, a winter in my ochre of their time, the which excoriates the locals, and which was incredibly rude about the people that she encountered on the and the experiences that they had the so my Okafor longtime felt very. Sensitive, of course, my yard is big Mediterranean party destination. Now, how was it in the middle of eighteen hundred eighteen hundreds when when Chopin went there he would have taken a boat from Barcelona? That's actually, right. He took a boat from buffalo and the journey took around eighteen nineteen hours a very primitive. It was a walled town. And so the the walls that you can see that today. Completely contained the town as it existed. And of course, he stayed there for a week or so and then moved outside the city of Parma, and then later moved up the mountain to also which is full monastery where they took a sale, and we're originally planning to stay there for a year. And the monastery itself is now incredibly popular it has been Chopin museum that has all these artifacts and letters and copies of manuscripts etcetera. So that's rather beautiful, and you can catch a train, which didn't exist in show pens time. Of course, this lovely decker train up the hill from Pomme. To Solaire, and it's a very very beautiful and over these lovely equifax and through these little tunnels. He's actually very very beautiful, but she'll spends time, of course, far more primitive. And that's of course, why they're there wasn't really an industry for concerts and piano, making it cetera. So that's why Chopin ends up on this very primitive instrument. Now, Paul you write about how Chopin went to me orca for health reasons to leave drizzly Perez, and he got me orca hoping for sunshine, and it wasn't as nice as he thought for his health, and he stayed sickly..

But first, we're off to the island of New Yorker with the conductor. Paul Kildare after spells his head of music at the older professed evil and director, the Wigmore hall Kildare published a biography of Benjamin Britten in two thousand and thirteen. He goes in search of the essence of ramonic- music with his latest book Chopin's BNO which opens in eighteen thirty eight as the composer steps off the steamer in Palmer. Chopin spent three months on the island with his lovers. Your son working in a room at former monastery writing to a friend in Paris.

He's actually working on quieter a number of pieces that he'd, he'd come to a halt over in the course of the previous couple of years, but the collection that really intrigued me was this set of twenty four preludes that he'd begun in Paris probably as early as eighteen thirty five in this winter in may orca with your Sohn's which is the winter of eighteen thirty eight thirty nine the preludes our response in some sense to box bowl, temperature Clavier.

And so as far as him recognizing this before anyone else, that's a really substantial achievement by the end of the century peanuts like Anton Rubinstein could also write about how valuable these pieces were, but not people weren't doing this and saying this in the eighteen thirties, you have lots of overlaps between the bark of the forty eight and the shop on in the twenty four very much.

"Think Of the literature that came out of the first World, War or the literature the songs the movies that came out of Vietnam. Those had a very important part in shaping reactions that we had then and, since towards those war, and it is a paradox I think that things are great beauty can come. Out of this attempt to deal with war but we have only to think of things like Benjamin Britten's. War requiem or the great novel war and peace or that wonderful statue which you can see in the of the winged victory of San. Mateo c- it's curious I think that not all was seems to produce. The same level of artistic engagement the first World War it seems to me produced much greater literature much greater poetry much greater questioning of the, meaning of war then did the second World War and that may. Be because the, second World War at least for those of us on the, allied side was much clearer it. Was a war that we felt. Hat to before it whereas the first World War increasingly we came to think. That perhaps should Did not. Have been forward and I think perhaps that's the reason why so, much came out, of the Vietnam war that it was a. War that many Americans and others. Around the world began to think was not necessary, and began to wonder why it had been fought so I want to. Look at some of the reasons particular reasons why ashes tried. To deal with war and why, we appreciate what they tried to do One reason I think is catharsis simply to try. And get the feelings that we have about war whether we fought it or whether. We simply observed it or whether we have suffered from it out into the open there is something about war which violates the norms of society and we feel in some ways that is something that taints in the I needed when Aeneas persuades. His father finally to flee from Troy he asked the old man to carry the most sacred things they have the symbols of their religion of their gods And his father refuses at first to carry them and Aeneas argues with them, and says father and I quote take in your arms the sacred emblems of our country's household gods for me fresh, from fierce battle in recent, slaughter it would be sinful to. Handle them until I washed myself clean in running water and I think that is part of what they are. It's, can do is that, active catharsis Soviet woman who was a medical assistant in the. Second World War said once in war your soul ages Homer was seen by the Greeks as a doctor of the, soul and so I think that. Is a very important part of what they are it's can do I think. What they are can do particularly perhaps during war is. Act as a gesture of defiance and of hope during the second World War for, example prisoners of war stage plays and concerts Oliver Messiaen the, great French composer was. Made a German prisoner of war in nineteen forty and he found himself in the company. Of three professional musicians a clarinetist violinist, and, a cellist in, that prison camp in, Germany and he himself played the piano he managed to obtain some paper and a pencil from. A friendly German guide and they found amazingly some old and very batted instruments and. He wrote a corvette which he called the kotecki for the end of times it was based, on the book of revelation in eight parts and it was performed I, out stores in, the prison camp And in the rain, on the fifteenth of January nine hundred forty one he later recalled, never was I listened to with. Such rapt attention and comprehension the eighth and last part of the quartet is. Entitled praise to the immortality of Jesus and again in. Messiah NHS own words and I think they're worth quoting here it is especially aimed, at the second aspect of Jesus Jesus the man the word, made flesh and mortally. Risen for our communication of his life It is all. Love it's slow ascent the acutely extreme is the essential man, to his, God the child of God his father the being made divine towards paradise And so acting I think as a. Gesture of defiance acting as a catharsis but also? I think the arts can help in making? Sense of the mystery of, war because, it is a. Mysterious activity how can. Human beings organize..
