Magical playing of beautiful pieces,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chopin: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 (Audio CD)
I already had a dated and uninspired CD of these two Chopin masterpieces, but wanted to see what the pieces would sound like on a better recording with a piano genius playing. The answer is poles apart. The sound quality and phrasing here is as near prefect as you can get, and I would recommend this recording to anyone.
As an introduction to Chopin's music, I would recommend this above the more famous Nocturnes,Waltz's and Mazurka's, wonderful though they are. Whilst music critics debate the standing of Copin's piano concertoes in the 'pantheon' of this genre, my personal view is that they don't sit too far behind Beethoven, Mozart and Rachmaninov
