A feast of Chopin,
This review is from: Fryderyk Chopin - Complete Waltzes and Impromptus (Audio CD)
A CD containing all of Chopin's waltzes and impromptus will, almost by definition, be a popular choice among afficionados of both piano music in general and Chopin in particular. The light, smooth delivery that Feltsman assumes makes for the easiest possible listening. All the waltzes are distinguished by their clear, rhythmic interpretation. Maybe, the character of individual key changes are more marked in Rubinstein's recordings but it is always a matter of opinion as to whose delivery one prefers. The Impromptus allow greater freedom for interpretation by the pianist and, for example, the No. 2 in F sharp minor, Op. 36 has a singing tone which is most pleasing.
In any event, everyone who listens to this recording will be well pleased with this choice.
