Chopin spent the winter of 1838/39 with George Sand and her children in Majorca, where they stayed in an abandoned Carthusian monastery at Valldemosa. George Sand wrote a famous and popular story about the holiday. On this CD Sand's words, taken from her memoirs, are spoken by Hannelore Elsner.
“Pairing a selection of Chopin's works with George Sand's accounts of the nightmarish winter she and the composer spent together in Majorca, this performance is beautifully played and read.”
“superbly well played with the benefit of a beautifully voiced and recorded instrument”
