Renowned Canadian pianist Janina Fialkowska presents an exquisite Parisian menu, prefacing a Chopin sequence with an exploration of the subtle textures and shifting colours of Debussy, Tailleferre, Fauré and Ravel. Fialkowska, protegée of Arthur Rubinstein, is a celebrated Chopin interpreter and has chosen the thrilling Scherzo in C sharp minor and visionary Fourth Ballade for this special programme.
Indeed, lesser mortals may well weep with envy at such unfaltering authority.Gramophone
