This disc of Chopin's four ballades from Kissin reveals the highest musicality, and these are clearly his favourite works in the piano repertoire because his playing is legendary. My favourites are the Berceuse and the Fourth Ballade which are played so beautifully and deeply, with great conviction and artistry. Get this CD if you like Chopin, and Kissin's piano playing. You will listen again and again. Well worth the money!

Previously I had Idel Beret`s playing of Chopin`s ballades-and that was good-but no-one can put fire into a piano offering like Evgeny Kissin. This is a premier recording of these marvellous ballades and is certainly a worthy addition to any collection.
