Chopin has been a central part of Ashkenazy's repertory since his participation in the International Chopin Competition at Warsaw in 1955, when he won second prize at the age of eighteen. During the years 1974-1984 Ashkenazy recorded his acclaimed survey of Chopin's solo piano music. In the early part of his recording career he had recorded selected works and from time to time he has revisted key pieces in the studio. This new recital brings together a selection of late Chopin pieces and includes one of Ashkenazy's favourite nocturnes, Op.62 no.1 in B major, a piece which he regularly performs as an encore at his recitals.

Ivan Moravec (1930) is one of the most important Czech artists of today. He is often invited into the recording studios and his numerous recordings (which have mostly taken place in the USA) have brought him a large number of international prizes and honours. His repertoire includes a selection of the most important works from the Classical and Romantic periods as well as a number of compositions by contemporary composers.

Maria Perrotta offers a richly comprehensive and demanding live Chopin programme on her new disc from Italian Decca. For one local critic, her playing compares favourably with Pollini (‘where Pollini is fast and formalistic, Perrotta is analytical and expressive but, like Pollini, always maintains a sense of formal unity’). Yet while her musicianship is, at its best, intense and compelling, it can also be overbearing with, at times, an almost Teutonic view of Chopin.

German-Japanese pianist Alice Sara Ott is a performer who appears to care more about the score and the composer than about her image and interpretations. After promoting Lang-Lang, a pianist of maximal technique but debatable taste, DG has given Ott an exclusive recording contract, and her first release, the complete waltzes of Chopin, shows her to be a pianist of taste and restraint. That is not to say that her performances here are ever less than dazzling, because she plays with supreme ease, or any less than affecting, because she brings out everything in the scores, from sparkling wit to darkest melancholy.

"Arrau's Chopin – now available in a six-CD box (Philips 432 303-2) as part of Philips's Arrau Edition – is as far from moonstruck "sentimentality" as any Chopin ever was. But no performance of the Preludes is more sentimental, in Schiller's sense, than the version Arrau recorded for Philips in 1973. Its premise – that the cycle is a grand tragedy, the darkest thing Chopin wrote – is unmistakable. Even the prefatory C-major Prelude heaves with orgasmic rubatos – more weight, it seems, than the music can possibly bear. And yet, as Arrau packs each small berth with a world of feeling, the weight grips and holds. At times, the sheer density of emotion can seem suffocatingly intense. The Prelude No. 22, a Stygian descent, is surely Hades; the plunging scales of No. 24 rip the thread of life."

Adam Harasiewicz’ legendäre Chopin-Aufnahmen. Er hat sein Musikerleben ganz seinem genialen Landsmann geweiht, und ohne Zweifel gehört der Pole Adam Harasiewicz zu den größten Chopin-Interpreten nach dem 2. Weltkrieg. Seit er 1955 gegen keinen Geringeren als Vladimir Ashkenazy in Warschau den prestigeträchtigen Internationalen Chopin-Wettbewerb gewinnen konnte, steht sein Name in einer Reihe mit Pianisten wie Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubinstein und Claudio Arrau.
