This review is from: Impromptus (Audio CD)
I first heard the impromptus as a teenager on an LP, played by Yuri Boukoff. They are certainly not among the most-played Chopin pieces, so I renewed my acquaintance with them by buying this CD on the back of a recommendation by Gramophone. I endorse the point made by Hurwitz in the Amazon bumf that Perahia treats these pieces seriously and with great love. Although he pays great attention to detail, the pieces flow beautifully. The other pieces on the disk are just as impressive, the Barcarolle and the Fantaisie in particular. This is top-class playing.
