It was, so here it is.)https://www.amazon.co.uk/Chopin-Mazurkas-Dmitri-Alexeev-2015-02-27/dp/B01K8MEO60Alexeev's mazurkas There's a review on Amazon of this which is totally right, and it's helped me understand something about these mazurkas (assuming Google translate is totally right) viz:欠点があるとするならば、土臭さはないので、それを求める方にはもの足りないはず。There's nuance and sensitivity and intelligence in spadefuls. Beautifully played. However because it's so very very polished and civilised it becomes like a box of chocolates - after a few, despite the loveliness of them, you start to get sick of it all.

Quote from: Mandryka on April 08, 2023, 09:37:26 AMHere's an discussion with me and two (other?) opinionated, passionate and knowledgeable gentlemen about the Chopin Barcarolle. You may or may not be amused. https://groups.google.com/g/rec.music.classical.recordings/c/dlpNCfgAj3c/m/s8kHTMlgCgAJI've got two things on my hard drive -- Schumann's Album for the Young (where he seems to announce each piece in Italian before playing it), and a concert with Miklos Perenyi of Beethoven sonatas (not very good IMO because of Perenyi.)
