The recording which we would like to present you with is of particular significance for several reasons – realised shortly before the pianist’s death – one could say it comprises the credo of her performance art and artistic testament. It is also a moving testimonial to the dignity with which she committed herself musically to the realisation of the project, despite her long battle with illness. It shows moreover, Tatiana Shebanova’s exceptional relationship with the historic Erard piano which she fell in love with ‘on first contact’ and which returned the compliment with all the tone colours of its sound. (…)

Preludes, Op. 28 and Sonata B flat minor, Op. 35 is a successive recording in the series The Real Chopin for which since 2007, Tatiana Shebanova has recorded her performances of the composers works on a period instrument. The pianist’s recording on an Erard piano is the first project of its type in the history of phonography. This unique publication of the National Fryderyk Chopin Institute allows us to trace the evolution of Chopin’s style and expand our experiences of his works through a new sound quality in keeping with the aura of the times within which he composed. This exceptional issue also reassesses Tatiana Shebanova’s interpretations of Chopin and her personal contribution to the composer’s anniversary year whose music she regarded as a constant source of inspiration.
