Beautifully recorded, seemingly as recently as early-August (that’s what the booklet says), Peter Jablonski adds to his distinguished Ondine discography, including, and, with the first twenty-nine (from fifty-five) of Chopin’s Mazurkas, from Opus 6 to Opus 41. These are wonderful performances, every mood, melody and rhythm magically catered for, whether outgoing, poignant, public, private or picturesque… however grand or, more likely, elusive, music that is immediately alluring yet with secrets aplenty to discover, of which Jablonski is a charismatic and insightful interpreter. Hopefully, Volume Two is not far away. Meanwhile, Ondine ODE 1412-2 offers many enticements, not least Jablonski’s deep engagement with Chopin’s core collection of pieces that are the very soul of Polish music.
