Ka Ling Colleen Lee, a rising star of Chopin interpretation, has won numerous awards at many leading piano competitions, including sixth prize at the Fifteenth International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw. Her sense of form and particular sensitivity to the timbres of the instrument have borne fruit in outstanding renderings of the B minor Sonata and the Polonaise-fantasy. Both these works appear on this disc, alongside Mazurkas from Op. 33 and six Preludes from Op. 28.
Recordings made on the Pleyel piano from 1848, in the Witold Lutoslawski Concert Studio of Polish Radio in Warsaw, on 26-27 November 2005.
