Format: Audio CD
This award winning recording from 1994 is yet another example of the performing genius of Perahia caught so well in the studio. Murray Perahia has had the enviable ability, to many other recording artists no doubt, of being able to capture the spontaneity of a live performance within the emotional confines of the recording studio.

This disc is a good example and also makes an interesting concert program with the focus being on the four Ballades as the main focus so to speak followed and complemented by a group of waltzes, mazurkas and etudes rather like encores at a concert. This is imaginative programming even if somewhat difficult to fit in without much partial doubling for collectors.

The performances all bring that special Perahia combination of immaculate technical command with added warmth so the element of 'glitter' is less apparent than in some other performers' contributions and this adds to the ultimate musical satisfaction. At the same time Perahia avoids being so weighty that there is any risk of dullness. In other words what we get here is that perfect combination of rock-sure technique and interpretive warmth that combines to give a deep musical reward to the listener.

In summary therefore, I would suggest that this disc will give a great deal of musical satisfaction to purchasers even if this leads to duplication of material. As an 'only' disc for purchasers it will be rewarding on its own behalf but for collectors it will probably take an honoured place among the sub-set of 'Perahia' specials within a collection regardless of duplication.

Truly a superb performance. Every note is beautifully enunciated with dramatic colour and intense dynamics. In my rather dated copy of the Penquin Guide to Classical CDs this recording is awarded a "rosette" (being their highest accolade), and deservedly so.

Well known music to me, and needed a disc as a present to my 11 year old granddaughter, who has 'fallen' for the Ballade No.1! Perahia does not disappoint, as one might expect from such an artist.

This is a gorgeous disc . I have several CD's of Chopin's piano music but nobody plays it better than Murray Perahia. He's the top's
