MARIA JOÃO PIRES VISITA CHOPIN

Maria João Pires - Chopin". CD duplo. Frédéric Chopin (CD 1: Sonata para piano nº 3 em si menor, op. 58; 2 Nocturnos op. 62; 3 Mazurcas op. 59. CD 2: Polonaise-Fantaisie em lá bemol maior, op. 61; 3 Mazurcas op. 63; 3 Valsas op. 64; Mazurcas op. 67, nº 2 e nº 4; Sonata para violoncelo e piano em sol menor, op. 65; Mazurca op. 68 nº 4) ). Maria João Pires (piano). Ed. Deutsche Grammophon, 2008. Distr. Universal Music Portugal.

Foi com muita emoção que ouvi esse maravilhoso cd enviado por um amigo querido de Portugal. Há muito não ouvia essas peças e fiquei maravilhado com a abordagem de Maria João, que lhe dá um outra dimensão, mais intimista, menos brilhante, falando diretamente ao coração. Na sonata nº 3, é emocionante perceber o trabalho contrapontístico de Chopin, que tanto amava a música de Bach. a pianista selecionou aqui algumas das últimas obras do compositor. Não perca!!
