Notes & Reviews:

Chopin's piano music has it all - lyricism, virtuosity, beautiful tunes, and memorable rhythms. It is music that has earned the love of audiences all over the world. For me, its freshness and innovation stand out. Chopin essentially established most of the genres in which he wrote: Ballade, Scherzo, Barcarolle, Nocturne, Mazurka. Whether or not he was the first to compose them for piano - and, in several cases, he was - they are all imbued with his uncanny sense of structure and harmony. Chopin, like Schubert just before him, is one of the first to develop and exploit textures and colors that are particular to the piano. He shows an intuitive understanding of how to distribute the notes in an accompaniment pattern and of how the pedal can contribute to the creation of previously unimagined textures. In some of the later works, including the Ballade No.3 and Barcarolle, the pedal is even used to create an entirely separate voice. "American pianist David Korevaar has his own distinctive approach to the works of Frédéric Chopin, and I personally find the results very gratifying... The selections are mostly very well-known examples of distinctive Chopin genres - ballade, scherzo, nocturne, mazurka, and barcarolle - but they sound refreshingly different here... a very satisfying program that, even with a duration of 76:53, you will soon want to hear again. "Phil Muse, Audio Society of Atlanta [June 2016].
