Warsaw. Chopin monument in the Lazienki Park.
Since 1959, in the summer, every Sunday at 12 o'clock - thousands of Warsaw residents and visitors from around the world listen to Chopin performed by the best pianists.
Piano is brought into the park at 10.30 a.m. o'clock. For an hour is always tuned, is checked his intonation and operation of all mechanisms. To perform is used a shorter piano, so-called cabinet piano (with a length of 1.8 meters), because a standard concert piano (2.5 meters) would not fit on the pedestal of the monument.
The biggest problem is the rapid changes in temperature and rains, as well as the acoustic challenges. When there is cool and humid, a sound carries better, and when there is dry and hot - the sound is short.
Always may happen something unusual during concerts under the roof. For example, one of the best Polish pianists - Halina Czerny-Stefanska, finished her recital at the monument of Chopin, despite the sting in the hand by a wasp.
Warsaw. Church of the Holy Cross.
The place where is placed the heart of Chopin. The body was buried in Paris at Père-Lachaise cemetery.
In 2014, Polish scientists opened the crypt in the church of the Holy Cross to check condition of the heart of the composer. The jar with a spirit pickle in which floats the organ was in perfect condition and has not been depressurized for over 160 years. Scientists have confirmed a change of heart caused by tuberculosis and heart failure. Unfortunately, it failed to investigate it by CT scan or take samples for genetic research.
All were opposed to do this. Starting with a great-great-granddaughter one of the sisters of Chopin, through director of the National Institute of Chopin, to the cardinal in charge of the parish. Therefore imposed only an extra layer of beeswax to secure the bonding layer between a lid and the jar against pairing and agreed on the next inspection of Chopin's heart for 50 years.
