The Chopin Project® aims to connect a global community focused on the work of Fryderyk Chopin and began and continues as the evolving blueprint of its founder, Frederick Slutsky, who is determined to make Chopin’s music more accessible to listeners and music students worldwide, through a variety of web, social media and live outreach events, digital and printed resources.

Chopin Project® is a unique component of the continuing worldwide celebration of Fryderyk Chopin’s life and legacy. It has grown to become several robust, interactive online destinations and a live concert series on Florida’s west coast, dedicated to promoting the discovery, research, inspiration and pure enjoyment of Chopin’s complete works, those of his contemporaries, those who influenced his work, and those he influenced.

Since its genesis in 2007, where it began as an ambitious live concert and symposium series, The Chopin Project® (http://www.chopinproject.com/) has become a comprehensive interactive user-focused enterprise. It fulfilled a unique role in the worldwide Chopin bicentennial celebration in 2010. The Chopin Project® Facebook community (https://www.facebook.com/chopinproject) is open to all.  Those preferring twitter can follow @chopinproject.

Chopin Project 2 in the App store is an extension of the Project’s effort to make his music accessible and affordable to most anyone, almost everywhere on the planet. The user’s ability to Search, Sort, Create and Listen to individual playlists – from classic favorites to underperformed rarities and “lost editions” – will gain for the listener a continuing or renewed (perhaps even a first) appreciation of his magical music. Four Volumes of music in either mp3 or CD format, published between 2009 and 2016, are available on the Chopin Project label: Rarities & Favorites, Volumes 1-4 via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Google Play and many other platforms. Eight more volumes are planned.

Also on Amazon and Sheet Music Plus is something unique: I Can Play Chopin, ten new arrangements of Chopin’s music for late beginner to late intermediate piano students, offering very early accessibility to music Chopin never intended for players of modest ability.
