Notes and Editorial Reviews

"[Perlemuter's] Ballades offer a consistently...engaging balance between expression and hauteur. Despite a few trivial slips, the G minor is characterful and richly engrossing, and the equality of free-wheeling drama and introspection embedded in the Second in F is purposefully realised. The third Ballade is very fine indeed and the Fourth, if anything, finer still in its sense of lyrical expression and narrative drama. The Polonaises offer virtuosic flair. I might be inclined to recommend this disc first to a newcomer to his Chopin recordings. It is conspicuously intelligent playing, tonally rich, musically elevated, wholly rewarding."
