Notes and Editorial Reviews

With this reading of Opus 25, Frédéric Chopin completes his cycle of the Chopin Etudes. Characterized by their greater complexity of counterpoint, rhythm and harmony, these showpieces are juxtaposed with some of the very last works penned by the Polish 'poet of the piano': Barcarolle, Berceuses, Polonaise-Fantaisie. 'crisp, smart, articulate performances...that...have a strong, provocative point of view.' USA Today With this reading of Opus 25, Frédéric Chopin completes his cycle of the Chopin Etudes.
