5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, 14 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chopin: Four Scherzi (Audio CD)
With Richter, Pollini is the great interpreter of the Scherzi. Astonishing mastery. He, alone, I think, with Richter, knows that Chopin wrote the Scherzi to fill his listeners with a sense of what it is to be alive, to be fully human, to experience pain and yet to want still to live, to wake up to what tomorrow may bring. Grazie Maurizio.

This review is from: Chopin: Four Scherzi (Audio CD)
It is hard to imagine a finer disc. Pollini's celebrated and profound affinity for Chopin, coupled with his complete technical mastery, make for some remarkable performances. Of particular interest to this listener is the Berceuse in D flat major. The unfolding and often beguiling series of melodic variations float over the wonderfully tender ostinato bass in such a manner as to make you feel you are hearing Pollini improvise. Published in 1845, this gem of a piece already points towards some of the right-hand figures and flourishes popular with today's jazz pianists.
