 Rubinstein's Final Chopin Mazurkas December 22, 2011 By T. Drake (South Euclid, OH) See All My Reviews "Arthur Rubinstein made three recordings of Chopin's 51 Mazurkas, this final set being made in 1965-1966. As with most everything he made multiple recordings of, the three sets of Mazurkas (along with three Mazurkas he recorded separately in 1932) make for fascinating comparisons. There is a gradual metamorphosis from the more exciting, brilliant, and episodic performances of the 1930s toward the more sober, reflective, structurally cohesive approach of the 1960s recordings. Rubinstein considered this version one of the finest recordings he had ever made, but in my opinion, his earlier versions are superior. In the 1930s set (volume 6), he more effectively captures the "swing" of this Polish peasant dance, where the 1960s version tends to sound metrically stricter and, at times, wanting in spontaneity. The 1950s version (Volume 27) melds the youthful and mature approaches, but I prefer the first set. Still, this is the only Mazurka set Rubinstein recorded in stereo, and Rubinstein enthusiasts will not want to be without it. There are many valid approaches to these elusive gems. In addition to this set, collectors would do well to aquire the 29 Mazurkas William Kapell recorded before his early death, and the scattered Mazurkas recorded by Horowitz. The recorded sound, which was pretty good to begin with, has been excellently remastered." Report Abuse
