Who better than a previous winner of the official Chopin Competition to take us on a tour of the great pianist/composer’s later works? Kenner shows us the intricacies of various barcarolles, mazurkas and sonatas, all taken from the twilight years of Chopin’s career, showing him at his most emotionally mature and compositionally assured.
