Frederic Chopin Edition Vol. 9 – Sonatas

3 Sonatas


RECORD OF THE MONTH – “The cool and vividly clear sound quality shows Mursky to his best advantage. … I loved every minute of this outstanding release with Mursky providing accounts that can stand comparison with the finest. Clearly born to play Chopin he is in quite remarkable form.” – www.musicweb-international.comMichael Cookson, Musicweb International, London


Eugène Mursky never leaves the listener unaffected. He presents us his own view of Chopin’s music and is distinguished by his stylistic diversity. In the sonatas, he does not forsake spectacular sound clashes and dramatic contrasts, but he emphasizes where possible the reflective of the music. Nevertheless, the individual compositions are never gloomy, never depressed, and in this way Mursky takes into account the fact that Chopin was a man of great Noblesse, an ‘aristocrate de coeur’, as René Martin once said.” –www.pizzicato.luPizzicato Magazin, Luxemburg
