Notes & Reviews:

Janina Fialkowska is a regular guest soloist with the world's most prestigious orchestras and has worked with conductors such as Haitink, Metha, Solti and Slatkin. She was born in Montreal amd her career was launched by Arthur Rubinstein after her prize winning performances at the first piano competition held in his name in 1974.

"As in the past everything is scrupulously worked and considered...In her curtain-raiser, the C sharp minor Polonaise, she is as keenly responsive to its robust clarion call to attention as she is to the central meno mosso's melting lyricism." -Gramophone Magazine, June 2010

"Fialkowska reveals herself as a great Chopinian poet who can make the piano sing and dance. Her immaculately judged rubato never sounds calculated, but respects the bel canto inspiration of Chopin's haunting melodies...This is some of Chopin's greatest music and the playing is sheer bliss." -Sunday Times, 16th May 2010 *****

"There is a new and unmistakable joie de vivre, an almost improvisatory abandon and, frequently, a sense of sheer unbuttoned fun not normally associated with either Fialkowska of Chopin...every subdivision is clear, shapely and dynamic." -BBC Music Magazine, August 2010 *****

"Fialkowska's affinity with the Romantic repertoire shines through in this live recording. These are sensitive and expressive performances." -The Independent on Sunday, 12th December 2010
