Chopin Piano Works - Iddo Bar-Shaï

Folle Journée de Nantes 2010
recorded in recitals on 30th and 31st of January 2010

Iddo Bar-Shaï has just released a recital of Chopin Mazurkas on Mirare which has drawn very significant praise. The redoubtable Tom Deacon, in fact, made one of his occasional forays into praise on RMCR. Actually, what I like about Tom is that he is constantly on the listen out for young players who stand out from the crowd. And I think you will agree, this is one.


As you might expect, too, Iddo Bar-Shaï's contribution to the Chopin festivities was dominated by Mazurkas, though we also got a splendid second sonata.

  1. Ton cher voisin te remercie!
    Je ne sais pas l'expliquer mais la qualité des mp3 à 128 k de France Musique me semble plus satisfaisante que celle d'autres radios...
    Il me semble, hein...
