5.0 out of 5 stars CHOPIN:PRELUDES,ETC. 30 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
VLADMIR ASHKENAZY IS MORE THAN JUST A BRILLIANT CONDUCTOR OF VARIOUS ORCHESTRAL WORKS SUCH AS SIBELIUS,TCHAIKOVSKY,SHOSTAKOVICH,ETC.,BUT A BRILLIANT PIANIST TOO,ESPECIALLY CHOPIN,THESE RECORDINGS OF HIS PRELUDES HAS CERTAINLY A GREAT WORLD ACCLAIM,ESPECIALLY ANOTHER GREAT PIANO VIRTUOSO OF MINE THAN NONE OTHER IS ARTUR RUBINSTEIN,ALSO A GREAT CHOPIN AFICIONADO,WHEN HE DID A GREAT COMPLETE CHOPIN RECORDINGS,DURING HIS LIFETIME.ALSO,I MANAGE TO TRACK DOWN A ORCHESTRATION OF THE 24 PRELUDES,WHEN IT WAS TRANSCRIBED FOR ORCHESTRA BY A FRENCH PIANIST,CONDUCTOR AND COMPOSER OF THE 20TH CENTURY,JEAN FRANCAIX[1912-1997],WHEN FIRST PREMIERED IN 1969.THE PRESENT RECORDING IN WHICH I GOT ALREADY,IS PERFORMED BY THE BAMBERG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CONDUCTED BY KARL ANTON RICKENBACHER.POP AFICIONADOS,WOULD NOT KNOW THAT PRELUDE NO.4 IN E MINOR WAS USED BY FRENCH SONGWRITER AND PERFORMER,BUT SOMETIMES AN ACTOR CALLED SERGE GAINSBOURG WHO ADAPTED THE SONG TO CHOPIN`S MUSIC ENTITLED JANE B.,WHICH CAN BE FOUND ON THE B-SIDE OF THE NO.1 HIT SINGLE IN 1969,AND THE PRELUDE NO.20 IN C MINOR WAS USED IN THE SONG CALLED COULD IT BE MAGIC,WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY BARRY MANILOW AS WELL AS A NO.3 HIT FOR TAKE THAT,AND EVEN ALSO A NO.40 HIT FOR THE LEGENDARY SONGSTRESS DONNA SUMMER,WHO PASSED AWAY THIS YEAR ON THE MAY THE 17TH,CAN BE FOUND ON THE 1976 ALBUM ENTITLED `A LOVE TRILOGY`.HOWEVER,A CERTAINLY GREAT PIANIST OF A GREAT LEGEND,BUT I REALLY THINK A GREAT RECORDING OF THIS GENERATION,BUT DEFINATELY A GREAT WORK TO ALL CLASSICAL FANATICS LIKE ME.
