 Combining elegance and virtuosity, pianist Russell Sherman returns to Avie with a traversal of Chopin’s Mazurkas, a popular 19th-century genre among Polish composers but one that Chopin made his own. He wrote mazurkas throughout his lifetime, from his early days in his native Warsaw until 1849, the year of his death in Paris. He brought numerous innovations to the dance form, evolving its humble folk origins to more contemporary art music. The Boston-based Sherman, who has performed the world over on the most illustrious stages and with all of the major orchestras, brings his signature grace, imagination and poetry to Chopin’s beloved oeuvre.

 

 "... This is absolutely top notch. Sherman’s touch is perfection: it tends toward the light and graceful, but often dials up full power when needed. The pieces careen from mood to mood, at turns pensive, playful, boisterous, stormy, and mysterious. Overlaid on top of all the sincere emotion is a sheen of rhythmic perfection... I have no reservations about recommending this set for purchase and then repeated al-at-once listening..."

Marco Frei - Piano News magazine (Germany) - March/April 2013


"... if there’s a soft spot in your heart for these pieces, as there seems to be within nearly everyone I know who loves the piano, you’ll probably find a great deal of interest and, no doubt, significant satisfaction in these thoughtful and imaginative performances."

Patrick Rucker - International Record Review - December 2012
