Except for some Polish songs and a few works for cello and piano trio, Chopin devoted his life to the creation of a richly melodic and harmonically original literature for the keyboard. From dances of his Polish homeland (such as the polonaise and the mazurka) to original "free" forms (such as the ballade), his music is still loved today and studied by both composition and keyboard students.

This is the fourth volume of Louis Lortie’s highly successful series devoted to Chopin. The recording perfectly illustrates how Chopin elevated the waltz to a genre of musical art, from danses de salon – evocative of a genial milieu – to ‘works’ with proper opus numbers. Growing up in the 1820s, the composer at first viewed the waltz purely pragmatically, as a means to a social end in the dance salon. But after spending time in Vienna and Paris in the 1830s he decided that a waltz might be worthy of the deeper appreciation accorded a ‘work’.

"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."

RCA Red Seal is a classical music label and is now part of Sony Masterworks. The Red Seal label was begun in 1902 by the Gramophone Company in the United Kingdom and was quickly adopted by its United States affiliate, the Victor Talking Machine Company, and its president, Eldridge R. Johnson. Distinctive, red paper information labels affixed to the centre of the two affiliated companies' black shellac discs inspired the name. Led by the work of the great tenor Enrico Caruso, Victor's Red Seal Records changed the perception of recorded music.

…Although little known in the West, never having toured or recorded there, Sofronitsky was held in the highest regard in his native land. Sviatoslav Richter and Emil Gilels looked up to Sofronitsky as their master, and famously, when Sofronitsky once drunkenly proclaimed that Richter was a genius, in return Richter toasted him and proclaimed him a god. Upon hearing of Sofronitsky's death, Gilels was reputed to have said that "the greatest pianist in the world has died."…

Dans cet enregistrement, Arthur Schoonderwoerd tente de retrouver l'esprit et le mouvement des Danses de Chopin. Des pièces qui, en leurs temps, étaient aussi bien jouées au concert que dans les bals.
Combien de fois avons-nous entendu les danses de Chopin jouées dans des tempos insolents ? Sans doute, pour les interprêtes, fallait-il souligner l'audace du compositeur et la tentation était grande de donner à sa musique une dimension supplémentaire : pour les uns ce fut la vitesse, pour d'autre le sérieux.
Aujourd'hui, le pianiste Arthur Schoonderwoerd se porte contre cette tradition d'interprétation. Ce faisant, il traque ce qui avait troublé les contemporains de Chopin et cherche un chemin de pensée dans les rythmes et les couleurs d'un piano formidablement poétique. (Mathias Heizmann)
