Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It took me a while to warm up to Biret's Mazurkas. My initial review of her volume 1 ranked it at only three stars. I've repented and upgraded that to four. Why? Because since then I've listened carefully to a lot of renditions of the Mazurkas. Biret's performances are not ideal (no one's are!), but others have more glaring weaknesses and fewer strengths. Simply put, she shines in the midst of the competition. Her occasional rhythmic fussiness is more than compensated for by her tonal color and ability to give wings to these dances for the soul.

Biret's Mazurkas are arguably some of the best. My personal favorite is still the traversal of Garrick Ohlsson, but this recording may well come in second. The major drawback of Biret is not her playing, but the recorded sound, which is rather tinny. Yet the ear soon adjusts, and the acoustics do not majorly distract.

Recommended, together with her volume 1, to all who love Chopin's Mazurkas, as well as anyone who is looking to be introduced to this music at a reasonable price.
