Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

No other great composer has dedicated himself as exclusively to the piano as Chopin. He was an inspired improviser who composed while playing, writing down his thoughts at the piano. His gift to the world is one of the richest catalogs of piano music from a single composer.

Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Yolanda Kondonassis (harp); Malcolm Frager (piano).
