Maryla Jonas, the Polish pianist who skyrocketed to fame a couple of seasons ago, is like everyone else in the world of pianism observing the centenary of Chopin's death.
Miss Jonas has recorded for Columbia a set of nine Chopin mazurkas which display admirably her range and versatility as an interpreter. Her style on the whole is characterized by delicacy and refinement, though she is capable of powerful, masculine performance when the music demands it. The recording is excellent.
