Format: Audio CD
Yundi has the most exquisitely tasteful rubato needed for Chopin Nocturnes. While he played the lyrical part of each Nocturne elegantly and serenely with poetic sensibility, he gave the most powerful playing for the stormy dramatic sections of these Nocturnes. After hearing six other pianists playing these Nocturnes, there is no doubt that those played by Yundi are the most satisfactorily played in all aspects such as rubato, phrasing, articulation, interpretation, technique and tonal shadings.

As Op 27 No 1 was very unfairly criticized by someone, I shall give my opinion here about this particular Nocturne to reveal the fact that Yundi always studies and understands a piece thoroughly before he brings it to the public. This is another Nocturne very well played by Yundi when he played the first part of this Nocturne faster so that the left hand accompaniment would not become sectional and hence was able to serve as a sea of waves to carry the dark and sometimes tension filled right hand melody. Rubinstein was too slow for this part of the Nocturne and therefore the left hand accompaniment had become fragmented. Yundi also played the first part of this Nocturne softly throughout as required but when the music reached the more triumphant mood in the middle part, he increased the volume gradually until it reached its glorious maximum. The way Yundi had played it, the two different moods - inner dark mood for the first part and triumphant mood for the middle part - were distinctively brought out by his good control of volume. Maria Joao Pires had as usual, played the first part of this Nocturne sometimes too loud with too much contrast in volume, resulting in some inconsistency in trying to express the somber mood for this part of the Nocturne. Again, technically, Yundi was in supreme command throughout the whole Nocturne.

This is a must-have recording.

Yundi is for me the best romantic pianist in the world. His Nocturnes interpretations are "sublimi". Best gift for Christmas!
