Again, beautiful playing!

I very much like your playing style also for the Mazurkas. You bring out very nicely the yearning component (the polish word "Zal") which is latent in so many Chopin pieces, and especially in his Mazurkas.

It was a pleasure for me to listen to both Mazurkas and have nothing to niggle!

Neither have I. Really well executed as always from your side. A pleasure to listen to and you have cared a lot for the tinyest detail.

Indeed, great playing again ! Estonia being so near to Poland does perhaps give you a special feeling for the Mazurka ? I am in the process of uploading them to the site.

One thing I heard. In Op2 No.2, in bars 19 and 20 you play the first LH chord as F-G#-A#. My Peters score has E-G#-A# here, but Peters is not always the most reliable. What score are you using ?

Thank You for comments!
Netherland is evidently closer to Poland than Estonia...
I have beenplaying mazurkas accordingly to the notes published in Moscow ( 1974). I did compare this with Peters and Padarewsky and indeed: in their reductions the harmony of the bars 19-20 is E-G#_A# (in my note it is E#-G#-A#).
I think that Peters and Padarewsky version is correct alltough even the moskovian harmony is absolutely logical. In the future I will play in this chord E (instead of E# ).

Yes it is, now that I actually look at the map 8)

Indeed the E sounds good too. But there is more tension with the E#, and if Paderewski has that too I assume it is correct (my Russian teacher always says this is the best Chopin edition).
