 Chopin as Chopin September 16, 2014 By Joseph A Guzman (Brooklyn, NY) See All My Reviews "This recording is remarkable for it's mixture of quiet, subtle virtuosity, musicianship and style. Both concertos are played as if they are works of art as opposed to technical showpieces. Mr. Ax is this generations Rudolph Serkin. Ormandy provides the idiomatic, thankless accompaniment with expert finesse." Report Abuse
