 Definitely a Master's interpretation of Chopin. August 7, 2012 By L. Labra (Oakland, CA) See All My Reviews "Understanding the value of different interprets, it is not easy to separate what you consider the best. The recording technology has been improving consistently, when you hear a recording from a recital, helps to perceive these qualities. Reason why Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, shares, despite of his known disregard for the audience, his deep sensibility, technique, and magical touch. Chopin, if still alive and given the choice, would have been very pleased to have Benedetti Michelangeli play his music instead of himself." Report Abuse
