The whole musical world is celebrating Chopin's 200th anniversary. This is justice as Chopin is a genius composer.
A quick parallel: Think of Monet and the impressionists. When their first works were shown to the audience, they were derided by conservative audience. Chopin's harmonics are similarly very modern paving the way to Debussy and Ravel.
The lesson is that one can really be worldly popular while breaking the rules.
