Notes & Reviews:

Chopin's writing is both virtuosic and dramatic. Both of these elements are brilliantly demonstrated on this collection from pianist Irina Chukovskaya. Different sides of Chopin's music are represented in this program. The Variations brilliantes and Bolero, Op. 19 are early works, and require grace and impeccable luster. The later works require a more lyrical approach, such as the Ballade No. 4 or the Waltz in C sharp minor. "Irina Chukovskaya is a brightly gifted pianist. Her performance attracts with its exceptional virtuosity, sonic culture and genuine artistry. Music of different styles and directions is within her power." (Mstislav Rostropovich)
