5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Performances 30 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
His interpretation of Chopin is one of the best in recent memories. The music is played with great clarity and poetry. There are certain passages where Mr. Nakamatsu interprets quite differently from other conventional performers. I have never heard of those tones inside Chopin's music before. Really mind openning. I really admire Nakamatsu's confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and Captivating 12 Jun 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Mr. Nakamatsu's Chopin interpretation is absolutely beautiful and poetic, and it does not suffer from the quirky eccentricities that some performers add into their interpretations- instead, it is fresh, clear, precise, dynamic, and captivating. A negative is that the recording suffers from some echoing reverbs. However, this is more than made up for by the amazing Steinway concert grand that Mr. Nakamatsu used for the recording: it has a brilliantly rich and sonorous tone that magically assists him in conveying the deep emotions and the lyrical richness of Chopin's music- indeed, this is one of the best pianos I have ever listened to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Free spirit of a poet 3 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I like this CD very much for the performer Jon Nakamatsu's fine interpretation of the works of Chopin. You can feel the free spirit of a poet - Chopin, thanks to Nakamatsu's tremendous performance which is stylish, sensitive, delicate, yet powerful with incredible speed when demanded. His sound is also clisp and clear, which makes his Chopin sound even younger and modern, like a California breeze. No matter how many times I already listened to it, the music touches my heart every time I listen to it. I like it so much, I bought another one and gave it to my mother who also loves Chopin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Playing! 13 Aug 2001
By Norm Hall - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is heroic playing like we used to hear from the old masters like Rubenstein etc. I find this CD thrilling. I play this for friends who are not classical music fans and they love it also. I predict a great future for Jon Nakamatsu!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, poetic, lyrical rendition of Chopin. 12 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this out of curiosity and was not expecting a great deal from it. However, it is brilliant! Nakamatsu captures Chopin's romance and passion with great sensitivity.
