Ignacy Jan Paderewski was a dashing, virtuosic pianist around the turn of the 20th century. In 1919, he was the Prime Minister of Poland... his signature is on the Treaty of Versailles. On Monday's Performance Today, we'll hear Paderewski's Piano Concerto No. 1, from a concert in his hometown of Warsaw, Poland.
