About

Sonya Bach’s debut album for Rubicon was a wellreceived 2-CD set of J.S Bach’s Keyboard Concerti with the English Chamber Orchestra. For this, her second album, she turns to Chopin and his Études.

These works so stunned the critics and public when they appeared that Theodor Kullak wrote some 50 years after their publication, “Hence when we speak of the ideal of an Etude, the name of Chopin almost involuntarily falls from our lips.” That was in the 1880s and it remains true to this day.

The two sets op.10 and op.25 occupy a unique position in piano literature, sweeping aside previously popular études by J.B. Cramer, Hummel, Kalkbrenner and Moscheles – all great pianist composers. Chopin learned from these composers and succeeded in elevating the étude from the practice room to the concert hall where they remain to this day.
