Notes and Editorial Reviews

One of the most important young pianists on the scene today, Adam Neiman has been described by the Chicago Tribune as “a genuine rarity… he plays with imagination and authority, not just an extra helping of technique. He was clearly born to be a pianist, and is carrying out a destiny written in his genes.” This program, produced especially for DVD, is devoted to the music of Fréderic Chopin, and includes the Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor, Ballade No. 3 in A-flat Major, Valse in A-flat Major, Op. 42, Valse in C-sharp minor, Op. 64, No. 2, Mazurka in A minor, Op. 17, No. 4, Nocturne in C minor, Op. 48, No. 1, and the Andante Spianato & Grande Polonaise, Op. 22.

Color, stereo, 90 minutes.
