Notes & Reviews:

Combining elegance and virtuosity, pianist Russell Sherman returns to Avie with a traversal of Chopin's Mazurkas, a popular 19th-century genre among Polish composers, but one that Chopin made his own. He wrote mazurkas throughout his lifetime, from his early days in his native Warsaw until 1849, the year of his death in Paris. He brought numerous innovations to the dance form, evolving its humble folk origins to more contemporary art music. Russell, who has performed the world over on the most illustrious stages and with all of the major orchestras, brings his signature grace, imagination, and poetry to Chopin's beloved oeuvre.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
This is absolutely top notch. Sherman's touch is perfection: it tends toward the light and graceful. The mazurka rhythm is consistently honored, making these works' Polish heritage unmistakable. It should fit perfectly into any collection. The lighter and brighter tone of this recording makes it ideal it is a pure delight in itself.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2013
It's hard to believe this is the playing of an octagenarian pianist...he shows an impish and limitless imagination. His playing will probably divide listeners - whimsical, quirky, full of Romantic-era effects such as uncoordinated hands and whirlwind rubatos which, nevertheless, don't descend into mannerism. The total effect is one of mesmerising improvisation.
