Vladimir Ashkenazy brings Chopin's piano works to life in this CD. The Grande Valse brillante, op.18 is played with such vigour and enthusiasm, starting the CD off at a brilliant pace. Much of Chopin's pieces are ridiculously difficult to play on the piano and Ashkenazy plays each note so clearly and to sheer perfection that it sounds easy. If you do not know of Chopin's piano pieces then I would advise anyone to buy this CD (in fact I have bought it as a gift for many people and none have been disappointed - most of whom had never enjoyed piano music before) - it is very pretty and delicate but (usually) fast-paced music.

Gentle soothing piano music played by the brilliant Vladimir Ashkenazy, If you want to escape from the hectic 21st century try listening to this and regain your sanity its just wonderful.

As an avid lover of Chopin I felt a "Best of" collection would lack depth, however i found this to be simply not the case. From the deeply moving Nocturns, powerful Ballades to the surprisingly interesting waltzes and Sherzos this collection is the best introduction to a brilliant composer. Ashkenazy as ever plays Chopin's works with more fluency than almost anyone on modern record, enough to spark anyone's interest in Chopin and his era of piano musc, i strongly urge you to buy this collection and then expand upon it!
