Asian pianists in Poland

The Telegraph did a feature on young Asian pianists going to Poland to study.  Poland is, of course, the land which gave us Fryderyk Chopin.  Chopin may have spent a great part of his life outside of his native land.  He may be buried in Parish.  But his heart was always in Poland and his music reflects his Polish heritage.  (Actually, his heart actually IS in Poland.  After his death, his heart was removed and smuggled back to Poland by his sister where it was interred in a church in Warsaw.)
