Product details

1 March 2010 marks the bicentenary of Chopin's birth. The genesis of this recording was to assemble a number of the composer's most attractive and original works as a mark of homage to one of the most outstandingly innovative and important composers for the piano who has ever lived. The CD contains a unique compilation: everything that Chopin ever wrote involving the designations, fantasy and impromptu, works into which he poured both love and intensity. In addition the recording includes the only work in which Chopin composed in every key, creating a sound world to characterise every tonality: the magical and comprehensive preludes Opus 28, Chopin's own homage to Bach.
