Quote from: Forever Electoral College on September 21, 2019, 01:54:36 PMMy fav Mazurkas. The subtle performance offers ennui and darkness.https://www.amazon.com/Chopin-Mazurkas-Other-Piano-Works/dp/B003QLY5JC/ref=tmm_acd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
Quote from: Brian on September 21, 2019, 05:47:08 PMHmmmm... This is the first time I've heard anyone refer to ennui as a desirable thing.
QuoteC'est l'Ennui! L'oeil chargé d'un pleur involontaire,II rêve d'échafauds en fumant son houka.Tu le connais, lecteur, ce monstre délicat,— Hypocrite lecteur, — mon semblable, — mon frère!

Quote from: Mandryka on September 21, 2019, 09:31:03 PMThanks for mentioning this, I've started to explore it. Two things strike me straight way. The first is the sweetness of the sound he makes, and the second is the naturalness of the rubato.
Quote from: Forever Electoral College on September 22, 2019, 11:32:51 AMAnother one I care.Chopin Assorted Mazurkas. (Iddo Bar-Shai Piano. Total Time: 78') https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001HBW31U/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_tW8HDbNBTV32K
Quote from: Forever Electoral College on September 22, 2019, 05:54:47 AMTalking about Ennui, Ott's Waltzes (not Mazurkas) present somehow oblique aestheticism with sensitivity and melancholy. Chopin: Complete Waltzes https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002WHTGC2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_wX3HDbD5A3GHC
Quote from: Mandryka on September 22, 2019, 12:56:01 PMYes, rather nice especially in the middle sections. Are you Ok with the recording? It sounds very close, maybe it's just the equipment Im using.
Quote from: George on September 22, 2019, 03:20:44 PMThanks for sharing this, Q. Interesting the recording dates listed on the back, as some Googling shows that he died in 1977, yet the recordings on 70% of CD 01 are listed as being from 1977 and the rest are listed as being from 1978! Must be a typo?
Quote from: Marc on September 23, 2019, 10:12:43 AMIf the twofer of Dante is the same recording, then the recording date must be 1958.Could that be possible? An early stereo recording?https://www.melomania.com/en/51-mazurkas-49842/s

Quote from: Marc on September 23, 2019, 10:45:49 AMNo, the sound and performance are just fine, I know that.But I was wondering about the recording date. Since Flier died in 1977, the recording date (1978) of a large part of Que's Amazon-link 2-cd must be wrong.The Dante twofer on Melomania speaks of 1958 as recording year, and I'm not sure whether Russia already delivered stereo recordings before the 1960s.Also, the Amazon link is an issue of Melodiya. Did Melodiya already exist in 1958?So: are the Dante and Melodiya 2 different recordings (maybe mono and stereo)?If so, then the recording dates of the Melodiya issue are incorrect.If they are the same recordings though, then the Dante recording date might be incorrect, unless they were already recording in very good stereo quality in the USSR, Anno Domini 1958.
