Misha Fomin plays Chopin
26 January 2017
For the celebratory year of Chopin, Misha Fomin made a CD of the Third Sonata and the first book of Études - not necessarily the favourites from the maestro’s pieces. It became a disk that I sat enjoying from beginning to end. Why? Because Fomin knows how to combine unblemished virtuosity with a natural feeling for poetry. His Études are miniatures not just decoration, they are ones that capture you.
