Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his fascinating liner notes, pianist Andrew Rangell points out that the mazurka originated sometime in the 17th century in Chopin's native district of Mazovia (in the Warsaw plains region). The form could be sung or danced, and was used to convey a remarkable variety of moods. In Chopin's varied output, the mazurka is the most abundantly represented genre, in which Chopin permitted himself an astonishing range of expression. Arriving in Paris at twenty-one, Chopin would, over a period of eighteen years, create a world of mazurkas in a setting far from the Warsaw plains. He possessed a perfect grasp of their language and structure, and an instinct to explore new possibilities of drama and design. In this 2-CD set, Andrew Rangell Read more brilliantly explores the repertoire that lived so close to Chopin's heart. Read less
