Frédéric Chopin's Last words


Last works 1842-1846

To mark the Chopin anniversary year, young pianist Elina Gotsouliak is releasing a disc of late works by the short-statured giant, the gentle virtuoso. Her debut CD on Genuin turns apparently familiar works into such a unique experience and creates so much atmospheric density it nearly stops your breath. The distance which lies between the brilliant showpieces of his youth and those of his final years, how much all the works on the disc open the door to his soul, whether in his last sonata, the Barcarolle or the Berceuse, becomes all too clear with each passing second. An outstanding CD.

"...She successfully breathes soulful life into the recording, in particular the sparkling iridescence of the Third Piano Sonata, Op. 58, with the heights and depths of its emotional contours."
