Gramophone Magazine have listed Janina Fialkowska’s interpretation of Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 2 as one of their ‘Top 10’ piano sonatas:
‘She is grand and imperious in the Second Sonata, storming the first movement’s climax in towering and heroic fashion, and her demonic pace and drive make a true Mephisto-scherzo of the second movement.’
This is from Janina’s disc of Chopin Etudes, Sonatas and Impromptus with ATMA Classique.
