Notes and Editorial Reviews
These 2CD budget price sets, drawn from the catalogues of EMI Classics and Virgin Classics, present the best-loved and most popular works by the great composers, performed by the world’s leading artists. Chopin is universally acclaimed as one of the most original and innovative composers of music for the piano, especially in the romantic and lyrical field. Much of his music is deeply patriotic and infused with a love of his native Poland. This collection covers examples of all the main genres in which Chopin wrote, including waltzes, preludes, mazurkas, études, nocturnes and polonaises, many of which have been heard in the soundtracks of films such as the The Truman Show (Romanze from Piano Concerto No.1) and The Pianist (Nocturne No.20).
Pianists include Martha Argerich, Daniel Barenboim, Youri Egorov, Ingrid Fliter, Nelson Goerner, Stephen Kovacevich, Mikhail Pletnev and Maurizio Pollini Read less
