This string quintet version of the two piano concertos is a revelation and a joy to the Chopin lover. As the CD notes show, it is close or identical to a format that the composer himself knew and used.
Fialkowska's playing is strong, limpid and passionate. She is a first rate interpreter of Chopin and she is well accompanied by the Chamber Players. I recommend this recording to anyone who wants to know the familiar pieces in a wonderful new way.

The best and most moving version of these two particular Chopin concertos I've ever heard. I recently went to a concert in aid of the British Red Cross at The Sage concert hall in Gateshead, near Newcastle upon Tyne starring this pianist and the audience were blown away by her outstanding performance. Never have I heard more "ENCORES" & "BRAVOS".
