Welcome back to London to Janina Fialkowska playing with the London Mozart Players Mozart’s beautiful little C major concerto K415.
Some beautifully refined playing sometimes overpowered by the orchestra much due to the very resonant St Johns acoustic.
Maybe the ideal performance for balance would indeed be for string quartet and piano something that often happens with this perfect trilogy of jewels K413,414,415 .
Alexander Ullman came to greet Janina who finds time to help and promote young talents in her festival in Bavaria which is now her home.
I remember Alex telling me how much he owed her for revealing the true meaning of Chopin’s mazurkas to him.Janina with the the same generosity, sharing her experience and artistry with the younger generation, as Artur Rubinstein had shared with her in her formative years.
So it will be quite a treat on Sunday at Westminster Hall at 4.30 for the Chopin Society to hear her play the two Chopin Concertos with string quartet.
