Notes and Editorial Reviews

On February 26, 2010 a historic concert took place in Warsaw, the birthplace of Fryderyk Chopin: during the course of that single evening all the works written by this composer for piano with orchestra were performed.

Playing an Érard piano dating from 1849, the pianists Nelson Goerner, Kevin Kenner and Janusz Olejniczak, alongside the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and Frans Brüggen, each performed one of the six works which the young Chopin, still at that time in Warsaw, composed in order for them to be displayed before the demanding public of his own country. Completing the film of this event is a series of interviews with the soloists, and with Marc Destrubé, the orchestra’s leader.

 One of the Best Concert DVDs August 1, 2012 By D. Stewart (Flagstaff, AZ) See All My Reviews "The highlight here is Nelson Goerner playing the 4 shorter pieces of Chopin for Piano and Orchestra Don't be afraid of the ERARD piano sound or the fact tha the orchestra is all period instruments. The sound is full and at times quite exciting. The performances as far as I can tell are excellent. Over 2 hours of piano and orchestra Chopin." Report Abuse
