About

‘Chopin’ is the major new album from acclaimed British pianist Ivana Gavric, released on Edition Classics. With three highly successful albums behind her, on Champs Hill Records, her new disc explores her Slavic roots and focuses with a clarity and intensity on that mightiest of all composers for piano, Fryderyk Franciszek Chopin.

‘Chopin’ is a highly personal album for Ivana, as she explains: “the pervasive nostalgia of the Mazurkas speaks to me the most. My own heritage probably also explains my attraction to their Eastern European-inspired song. I have the fondest memories of dancing around my grandmother’s kitchen to tapes of polkas and mazurkas which she had brought back from a trip to Poland. Likewise of hearing my mother play many of the pieces featured on this album.”

Focussing on the early Mazurkas - she stops in 1838 - for their charming more-rustic and less-stylistic qualities, Ivana adds: “I have decided not to present them in chronological order, but, rather, to mirror the contour of a recital - which hopefully will cast a spotlight on some of the lesser known numbers.”

‘Chopin’ looks set to reinforce her formidable reputation and to become one of the most vital albums from a British artist this year. Edition Classics is proud to collaborate with a truly unique talent, in a career that goes from strength to strength.

“playing of an altogether extraordinary calibre” - BBC Music Magazine (‘In the Mists’, BBC Music Magazine Award Winner 2011)

“Gavric’s is, without question, the greatest and most revelatory performance of this extraordinarily original work I have ever heard. She is superlative here... beautifully expressive, driven by a sure understanding of what this music is about... A most impressive recital disc, outstandingly well recorded” - Robert Matthew-Walker, IRR Outstanding
