Biography

Krystian Zimerman comes from a family with rich music-making traditions. Musicians would meet almost daily in his home to play various works, mostly chamber music. These performances afforded Mr. Zimerman a most intimate, natural, everyday contact with live music and provided an early impetus to his musical career. He made his first steps in music under his father's supervision, and at the ... Read more in Amazon's Krystian Zimerman Store

A "Complete" Disappointment 31 Dec. 2003
By Michael Brad Richman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this two-disc set of the Works for Piano and Orchestra from DG's "Complete Chopin Edition" from Amazon, and I regret it. The Giulini recordings featured here, Concerto No. 2 and the "Andante spinato & Grande Polonaise" both with Zimerman, are quite good. However, the other material leaves a lot to be desired. First, the Arrau/Inbal recordings are the very same ones featured on a competing Philips Duo title (which I own), and those who read my reviews know how I feel about duplication. Second, while I love vintage stereo performances, and the Askenase/Otterloo account of the "Krakowiak" hails from 1959, this work is elementary by Chopin standards, and illustrates why it's not always worthwhile to be a completist. Finally, when DG/Universal is compiling recordings for a celebratory "Complete Edition" of Chopin, why do they select a live recording of his greatest orchestral work, Piano Concerto No. 1. The Zimerman/Kondrashin is very good, but surely DG has more appropriate studio accounts in its vaults, like the Argerich/Abbado or even the Zimerman/Giulini (which I have noticed is available with the aforementioned PC No. 2 as a full-price single disc -- sounds like a better buy!). The inclusion of one of them might have helped make this a definitive collection, instead of a "complete" disappointment.
