Fryderyk Chopin’s name is synonymous with the piano. It is perhaps for this reason that his songs have been so often overlooked.

In them the piano shares the spotlight with the singer, yet they possess the same combination of delicacy, power and beauty as his greatest works.

This disc brings together Chopin’s complete songs, as well as transcriptions of four of his mazurkas by the French singer Pauline Viardot.

Graduates of the Chopin Academy of Music and prize-winners at several competitions, sisters Olga and Natalya Pasichnyk make their Naxos début with these charming rarities.

Gramophone Magazine

February 2011

“each song is individually characterised by Olga's expressive and agile soprano - she can exchange a soubrette lightness for a rich chest tone at the drop of a hat...sensitive to the dominant characters of nostalgia, lovelorn youth and folkloric innocence...[Natalya] follows her sister's every twist and turn with remarkable empathy.”
