This review is from: Chopin: Mazurkas (Audio CD)
There seems to be different opinions of this double CD of Chopin's Mazurkas performed by Vladimir Ashkenazy for Decca. Ashkenazy recorded them through the 1970/80s and for me they are all beautifully played. He manages to convey the right emotions with strong but sensitive playing and it was a joy to hear my favourite Mazurkas, like the op.59 set(A minor, A flat major and F sharp minor) or A minor op.17 and C sharp minor op.6. Plus, it was also very refreshing to hear the many Mazurkas I didn't know which, of course, was due to Ashkenazy's brilliant playing. Highly recommended.
