The main bulk of the Jonas discography is devoted to solo piano works by Chopin, and more than half of this is assigned to the mazurkas; she recorded twenty-two in all, in four sessions between 1946 and 1949. The selection covers a broad emotional range and she explores and reveals the individual character of each of these miniature jewels. Op. 17, no. 2 is imbued with world weariness and likewise Op 68, no. 4 in F minor is wistful. Op. 17, No 4 speaks of nostalgia and regret, whilst Op. 63, No. 3 in C sharp minor is delivered with elegant refinement. The Mazurka in B flat Op. Posth is subtly articulated, and the G major Op. Posth is more upbeat and genial.
