Quote from: Mandryka on July 06, 2022, 11:32:48 PMAnyone know anything about Maria Christina Mohovich? Some of these mazurkas seem so strong and characterful they make me think of Tipo's nocturnes. There's a good Schumann Cd too - symphonic etudes.
Quote from: Mandryka on September 28, 2022, 09:25:02 AMYes the interpretation is good but the actual pianism, or maybe it's the recording, lacks the refinement and fluidity and colour of the top tier mazurka-wallahs.
Quote from: Mandryka on March 24, 2019, 04:42:38 AMPletnev plays 30 minutes of mazurkas, I don't know what to make of it really, it's refined and poetic and reticent.[flash=200,200]https://www.youtube.com/v/ruVA4kKpaAc&t=121s[/flash]
Quote from: Verena on December 18, 2022, 08:25:08 AMThe big gestures which you mention are sometimes too much of a good thing for me, too. I think I mostly listen for the timing and that's what I love about his interpretation. Having listened to some mazurkas again today, I guess my favorites remain Maryla Jonas, Reisenberg, Rubinstein (on some days) and Boshniakovich. But he comes quite close.

Quote from: Que on December 24, 2022, 06:16:08 AMFYI I wasn't surprised by your reservations. I feel think early 20th c. Steinways sound best, and not the modern ones.
Quote from: Mandryka on December 27, 2022, 12:38:37 AMA handful of mazurkas like you've never heard before, from Tobias Koch.
Quote from: Dry Brett Kavanaugh on December 19, 2022, 09:03:24 AMThank you for the names you mentioned. I checked Boshniakovich (older recording/Denon?) on Youtube and I liked it a lot. I didn't know about him. I will look for a physical cd in Japan next year. Yes, just like wine tasting, I enjoy listening to Mazurkas in diverse approaches.
