About

On 15 December 1842, Frédéric Chopin wrote to Breitkopf and Härtel, his publishers in Leipzig, offering them a newly composed Ballade and a Scherzo, and mentioning a new Impromptu. The pieces involved were the Fourth Scherzo, the Fourth Ballade, and the Third Impromptu, without a doubt three of the composer’s greatest works.

Janina Fialkowska’s third Chopin Recital album is built around these late works. Also included is Chopin’s final major work, the Polonaise-Fantaisie, a piece which stirs up wild and wishful speculations over the direction in which his compositional genius was heading before his fragile life came to its tragically premature end.

For over 40 years, concert pianist Janina Fialkowska has enchanted audiences and critics around the world. She has been praised for her musical integrity, her refreshing natural approach and her unique piano sound thus becoming “one of the Grandes Dames of piano playing” (Frankfurter Allgemeine, 2015).
