Notes and Editorial Reviews

"With Volume 2 we hear Ohlsson having great fun with the ‘bagpipes’ with Op. 56 No. 2, and this set is full of very nice touches. Delicacy is a positive feature of the later Op. 67 and Op. 68 sets, Op. 68 No. 4 being Chopin’s ‘final inspiration’, the composer too ill even to try it out on the piano. Ohlsson is sensitive to the gentler characteristics in these pieces, and the ride here is both vibrantly lively and poetically restrained."
