vol.11a - Chopin's variants

CLASSICA JAPAN 'Yuko Kawai talks about Chopin National Edition'
Vol.11a - "Chopin's variants"

Nocturne No.2 in E-flat major Op.9 No.2 version with Chopin's authentic variants (fragment)

"If we have two or more authentic 'versions', not only one, we say we have 'variant(s)'. ('Variant' and 'variation' are not the same.) Chopin's variants are just beautiful and inspiring."


Yuko expresses her greatest and deepest respect for the work by prof.Jan Ekier and prof.Paweł Kamiński.

This TV programme won prestigious JSBA (Japan Satellite Broadcasting Association) Original Programming Awards.
