Additional Personnel / Information
Tobin Mueller: piano.
Tobin Mueller, award-winning Jazz pianist, reinterprets Chopin's greatest works (Disc 1) and then performs 3 original piano sonatas as a Romantic homage to Chopin (Disc 2). “In every case, the listener has the sense that Mueller is having his personal conversation as a composer and pianist with these great composers.” - Fanfare Magazine, Notable Recordings winner. "I am struck by the intimacy, energy and flow of these performance recordings. I feel as if Tobin is giving me a personal concert in his living room. Familiar Chopin threads weave and mingle with Tobin's upbeat jazz impressions. This entire double album is a pleasurable listening experience," - Richard Schletty.
