      Chopin: Four Mazurkas, Op 33 (10:56)

      Russell Sherman, piano

      Combining elegance and virtuosity, pianist Russell Sherman presents a traversal of Chopin’s Mazurkas, a popular 19th-century genre among Polish composers, but one that Chopin made his own. He wrote mazurkas throughout his lifetime, from his early days in his native Warsaw until 1849, the year of his death in Paris. He brought numerous innovations to the dance form, evolving its humble folk origins to more contemporary art music.
