Label: Leatham Music Cat. No.: LM002 Medium: CD No. Discs: 2

Performed on a Stuart & Sons piano.

Gregory Kinda, born and trained in Poland, lets the music of Chopin speak with the special authority of two centuries of tradition, from the gentle poetry of the Preludes, the soaring vocal lines of the Nocturnes, the fluid dance rhythms of the Waltzes and Mazurkas to the sparkling virtuosity of the large scale concert works.

Kinda's overview includes the patriotic Heroic Polonaise Op. 53. This and the Military Polonaise Op. 40 No. 1 are amongst Chopin's most famous works. To this day they remain as popular musical symbols of his homeland.

Four of the Etudes Op. 10 are performed. Some require an astonishing virtuoso technique but also the sensibility to leave space for the music to breathe. Kinda skillfully balances the technical and emotional aspects of these show pieces.

Nocturnes from Op. 9 and Op. 48 are fine examples of Chopin's melodic intensity and harmonic originality.

Waltzes include the Minute Waltz Op. 64, the introspective A Min Op. Posth., Op. 69, and the great Valse Brillante Op. 34.

Chopin wrote Mazurkas throughout his life, documenting the development of his harmonic skills.. Based on traditional forms and rhythms, these stylized dances are often richly chromatic. Gregory Kinda plays from Op. 7, Op. 17, and Op. 33.

Six of the Preludes Op. 28, including the celebrated Raindrop, are gems from this remarkable and very popular set of 24 poetic miniature masterpieces.

Of Chopin's major concert items, Kinda plays two each of the Ballades and Scherzi plus the Andante Spianato et Grande Polonaise. In these we hear the architecture and soul of Chopin's music presented with great conviction.

Gregory Kinda has worked as a teacher and performer in Australia since 2000 and undertaken Doctoral studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. In March 2010 he opened the state celebrations of Chopin's 200th birthday at the Sydney City Recital Hall, Angel Place, in a public recital attended by the Ambassador of Poland Andrzej Jaroszynski, the Polish Consul General Daniel Gromann and the Governor of NSW, Professor Marie Bashir AC.
