 Klara Min Soloist


"Min plays with the most ravishing piano tone I’ve heard in the last 50 discs I’ve listened to, at least! Her dynamic control is out of this world … anybody’s music would be served well by Min’s touch."
 
Thus raved American Record Guide’s Stephen Estep in his review of a previous recording by distinguished Korean pianist Klara Min. With this release, Min brings her special touch to a seventeen-piece survey of her favorite Mazurkas – a unique “composer genre” from Frédéric Chopin (1810-1849): widely regarded as the most intimate, heartfelt, emotionally varied, and deeply personal music that this beloved “Poet of the piano” ever wrote. Loosely based on the traditional Polish mazurek dance-form, Chopin applied subtle classical sophistication and advanced (for his day) harmonic schemes to this mostly simple folk-form, elevating it into high musical art that is far better-suited to the concert stage (or classical recordings) than to dancing!
 
Klara Min – justly renowned for her championing of Korean composers as well as her overall versatility – applies her “ravishing piano tone” to these lovely and affecting works, as well as her rare interpretive acumen, technical wizardry, plus a deeply intuitive and soulful affinity for Chopin’s music.
 
Highlights:
 
Well-chosen selections from Chopin’s most intimate and deeply personal “composer genre.”
Music of exceptional delicacy, subtlety and sheer beauty
Touching interpretations from an artist renowned for her sensitivity, versatility and “ravishing tone.”

 "... Thoughtfulness combines with refinement to produce one of the most effective recent collections of Mazurkas that I have heard. The sound is pristine."

"... Min’s superbly controlled technique and formidable coloristic resources allow her to fully realize her conceptions, aided by Delos’ vibrant, lifelike sonics."
