Notes and Editorial Reviews
Maurizio Pollini, “the pre-eminent Chopinist of his generation” (Fanfare), continues his revelatory and chronological re-exploration of the Polish master’s late works. This album contains the pianist’s latest thoughts on Opp. 55–58 (1843/4), including the B minor Sonata and Berceuse.
Pollini remains ever the master pianist, a cultivated musician of varied tastes, wide experience and provocative intellect. These qualities alone command our attention.
