GUIOMAR NOVAES PLAYS CHOPIN DANCES
Mazurkas, Waltzes and Polonaises

Guiomar Novaes plays Chopin dances, a number of the mazurkas, waltzes, and my favorite of the polonaises, beautifully, perfectly, with delicacy, and with élan.  These stylized dances are performed here by one of the greatest pianists of all time, whose ability to express the subtle rhythmic differences between the two forms without excessive impedance to the forward motion of the music is a delight
