And here is a video clip of Moravec performing Chopin's Mazurka in a minor, Op. 17. No. 4:

(William Kapell also has a heartbreakingly beautiful recording of this Mazurka which I cannot recommend enough.)

I've heard all of Moravec's Chopin recordings. His Preludes (the recording he made with the Connoisseur Society label) and Nocturnes are for all time.

Op. 68 No. 2? I think that's a mistake. It should be Op. 17 no. 4.

Thanks, Balakirev, for your eagle eye. You are right! I just made the correction to my original post. (Damn these opus numbers!)
