A thwarted love affair conducted across hundreds of kilometres inspired Frederic Chopin to pen his intimate feelings in a series of songs. But few have
heard them. Now Melbourne based Polish soprano
Irena Grainge has dusted off these forgotten fragments
of the romantic era and recorded the complete set of 19
songs, accompanied by leading New York based
Chopinist Alan Kogosowski. From the Heart:
Frederic Chopin - Songs is the first Australian
recording of Chopin's songs sung in the original language.
