Classic FM Drive with John Brunning 5pm - 7pm
The young Korean pianist Klara Min's critically acclaimed CD of Chopin is John Brunning's Drive featured album from 20 May.
With her new CD, the outstanding Korean pianist Klara Min surveys 17 of her favorite Mazurkas by Chopin.
These pieces are widely regarded as the most intimate, heartfelt, emotional, and personal music that Chopin composed. Basing his compositions on a traditional Polish dance form, Chopin raised the mazurka to a high musical status.
Min's approach is immacuately detailed. Her technically brilliant playing, superb control of dynamics and intuitive musicianship are to the fore in these wonderful, sensitive and polished performances.
