Notes & Reviews:

For Frederic Chopin, the piano was "a soul mate" to which his career was devoted - his two Piano Concerti are virtuoso pieces whose creativity had a significant impact on 19th century music composition, radically altering the course of music history. Reflecting the spirit of traditional folk dance from the composer's native Poland, there is a strong sense of longing in this music - a wistful aching of the heart - which continues to transcend boundaries today, be tehy of nations, cultures or experiences. The ephemeral music of Chopin has been a lifelong preoccupation for Sombart, not only as a performer but as a pedagogue seeking to share classical music with the widest possible audience.
