Fryderyk Chopin’s name is synonymous with the piano. It is perhaps for this reason that his songs have been so often overlooked. In them the piano shares the spotlight with the singer, yet they possess the same combination of delicacy, power and beauty as his greatest works. This disc brings together Chopin’s complete songs, as well as transcriptions of four of his mazurkas by the French singer Pauline Viardot. Graduates of the Chopin Academy of Music and prize-winners at several competitions, sisters Olga and Natalya Pasichnyk make their Naxos début with these charming rarities.

Review By Brian Wilson,MusicWeb International,December 2010

This is unusual and very welcome fare from Naxos for the Chopin bi-centenary in the form of his complete songs, plus four arrangements of his Mazurkas, made by French singer Pauline Viardot-García in 1864. These are enjoyably airy performances of mainly light-hearted music, though there is also power and beauty here, all well recorded.
