Description

To mark the 200th year anniversary of Chopin’s Birthday, this delightful 3 CD collection celebrates the music of this much loved composer and features the Piano Concerto in F minor, Op. 21 and the popular Scherzos, Waltzes, Mazurkas, Nocturnes and Polonaises.

These recordings of Chopin solo piano music show Felicja Blumental further exploring the music of her homeland while demonstrating her love and affinity for the music and dance forms that inspired Chopin. Her stirring and illuminating interpretation of the 2nd movement in Chopin’s Concerto is beautifully balanced by the four lively Scherzi.

“This is Chopin playing of the highest order…..these performances positively fizz with character, wit and vitality. Felicja Blumental is at least as convincing as (and perhaps stylistically closest to) Rubinstein’s last set on RCA” MusicWeb.
