Rivages – A beautiful new ECM release by Jean-Louis Matinier and Kevin Seddiki, A wonderful new Chopin Concerto recording by Benjamin Grosvenor, Beethoven Piano Concerto No. I confess that I am also making my assessments based on recorded sound quality. Will check him out! ( Log Out / 

This was one of her first recordings. A classical music blog by music critic Tim Mangan, Evaporation of my thoughts and observations, Piano Teaching, Playing, Singing and Listening, A brand new journal reviewing books, cinema, music, Creative and Performing Arts: Writing, Classical Music, Photography, I collect jazz on vinyl, I dig the Dave Brubeck Quartet, & I write about it. But with this specific question regarding Chopin, I noticed that I already pretty much had all the recordings I recommended covered on my blog. 2, in a row. This list was triggered by a very interesting thread on a discussion forum I participate in, on Computer Audiophile. In a way, you could think that for this blog post pretty much all I did was copy this box set. It is salutary to be reminded that the Fantasia and Krakowiak were composed when Chopin was still a teenager (1828). But you probably have noticed the large number of yellow covers above, and DG really did a great job on this 17 CD box. So I must admit that until recently I only knew one recording of this, by Sol Gabetta.

I’ve also mentioned this Album in My 25 Essential Classical Music album, as it is so important to me. Read review, 'I know of no other pianist who combines attention to the smallest detail with such nobility of phrase and cohesive sweep of the dance as a whole.' The recording by Paul Tortelier and Aldo Ciccolini of the last work Chopin published (Paris, 1847), which they couple with Rachmaninov's Sonata, has been a favourite of mine since it appeared. That said, although I do appreciate good sound quality and at least on the headphone side have a system to appreciate it (Sennheiser HD800), I still will always prefer musical performance over recording quality.

A welcome change from the standard coupling of the two concertos, this programme is a distinguished addition to the bicentennial celebrations, an all-Polish affair with the exception of its Uzbek soloist.

Some readers may be suprised that I rank these so high, but these little gems are very close to my heart. Ray Brown – 3 Dimensional – Swinging Like Crazy, A new Trout Quartet recording with Daniil Trifonov and Anne Sophie Mutter – Very Enjoyable, the legendary Ivan Moravec version really is unbeatable, I’ve also mentioned this Album in My 25 Essential Classical Music album, recorded this as one of his first albums on Deutsche Grammophon, my favorite version comes from the young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, A wonderful new Chopin Concerto recording by Benjamin Grosvenor – musicophilesblog – From Keith Jarrett to Johannes Brahms, My Reflections on the 2020 Gramophone Awards I – Concerto – musicophilesblog – From Keith Jarrett to Johannes Brahms, Follow musicophilesblog – From Keith Jarrett to Johannes Brahms on WordPress.com, Musicophile's 25 Essential Classical Albums, Melody Gardot's New Album Sunset In The Blue - A Review (sort of), One of the best Jarrett Solo albums: Paris Concert, Melody Gardot Live In Europe - A Must Have Album - My Review, Keith Jarrett's Last (?) This is altogether a recording of magnificent playing.

I usually didn’t care so much about these little dances, but Rubinstein really gives these little pieces such a very special meaning, it is a pleasure to listen to. To me, the Nocturnes are the quintessential Chopin, even more than the Preludes or the Etudes.

Mark Obert-Thorn’s restoration of the 1953 sound is a model of remastery though even he cannot make the 1946 Second Concerto sound less than cramped. Included here are Gramophone Award-winning albums, Recordings of the Month and Editor's Choice discs from Rubinstein, Argerich, Pollini, Perahia, Cortot, Grosvenor, and many more.
