Rendez-vous with Frédéric

The last two Sundays I've had a rendez-vous with Frédéric.  A musical rendez-vous with Frédéric Chopin that is!

Chopin's romantic music.....performed by two brilliant one of Paris' most romantic gardens....le Jardin du was a very good way to spend Sunday afternoon.

But first.......a little quiet time at the Fountaine Medicis.....
Calm, quiet, serene...and always a chair to relax on.
Then....we gathered at the bandstand......
For...the music of Frédéric Chopin.....
Mischa Kozlowski (classical piano) and Slawek Jaskulke (piano jazz)......
two brilliant young pianists
had the audience mesmerised
with their Chopin interpretations.
And after the concert...tea in the Pavillon de La Fontaine and a short stroll through le Jardin du Luxembourg.
Le Jardin du Luxembourg is dotted with beautiful marble statues
but this statue caught my eye....
George Sand....
famous writer and Chopin's lover.
Simply....a trés bon way to spend Sunday afternoon in Paris.   Merci beaucoup Paris.
