Description
After a relationship lasting some ten years, Chopin finally separated from George Sand in July 1847. It was on her estate at Nohant in the summer of 1846 that he composed, started or finished the last pieces to be printed in his lifetime: ‘miniatures’ like the Mazurkas and the Waltzes, or pieces with a more elaborate structure such as the Barcarolle, the Nocturnes and the Sonata for piano and cello. Amoyel and Bertrand plunge us into the heart of those few months, when the ailing Chopin did not yet know that he was leaving his musical testament.
It’s a lovely anthology, beautifully thought out and always executed with perceptive care. GUARDIAN
