Notes and Editorial Reviews

Evgeny Kissin came to international attention aged 12, playing Chopin's piano concertos in Moscow with the Moscow State Philharmonic. He is undoubtedly one of today's most prominent pianists. His five Chopin albums on RCA Red Seal presented here in this limited edition box set are a breathtaking testimony to this artist's great sensitivity and technical perfection that serve Chopin's repertoire so well. From the moving Fantaisie Op.49 that opens the first album to the thrilling final Polonaise Op.53, Kissin takes us on a romantic journey where intensity of mood and delicate virtuosity are perfectly combined.
