The Eloquence label has restored to modern circulation many recordings of the Swiss conductor Ernest Ansermet, but few of them have been as overlooked as this pair of concertos, which are now released internationally for the first time on CD, in new digital remasterings. French music found Ansermet in his element, and he was a concerto accompanist of renowned sensitivity: ‘the slow movement is particularly sweetly felt,’ as Gramophone remarked in its March 1951 review of the Chopin F minor concerto. In his booklet note, François Hundry (author of the authoritative biography of Ansermet) remarks on the frisson and Romantic sensibility which pianist and conductor create together in this, their only partnership on record.

This grande dame of the piano world, possessed of an extraordinarily modest, charming personality – focused on the music, devoted to deeply understanding it – has performed three times during the Chopin and His Europe Festival at the invitation of The Fryderyk Chopin Institute. The recordings on this album come from her concerts in 2010 (when she performed the Piano Concerto in F minor op. 21 with the Sinfonia Varsovia orchestra under the baton of Christopher Warren-Green) and 2014 (when she performed a recital including, among other items, the Nocturnes presented here). A presentation of – by nature – completely different interpretations, which nonetheless form an extraordinarily coherent artistic whole. Superb creations displaying the most beautiful side of pianistic art.

Depuis son prix au prestigieux concours Frédéric-Chopin de Varsovie, le pianiste français Jean-Marc Luisada compte clairement parmi les spécialistes de la musique du grand compositeur romantique. Cet enregistrement est rare et a de quoi surprendre, même les plus blasés, par une discographie chopinienne plutôt abondante. Certes, Le Premier concerto de Chopin ne manque pas d'interprétations de grande valeur, mais la version chambriste que nous propose Jean-Marc Luisada en compagnie du Quatuor Talich permet un nouvel éclairage de la partition de Frédéric Chopin. Face aux équilibres tendus et intimes du quatuor, le toucher et le phrasé de Luisada s'expriment pleinement. La partition est à la fois légère et pleine, entraînante et réfléchie, lyrique et sobre. Ici, pas de lutte inégale entre le soliste et la masse orchestrale mais un échange permanent qui met en lumière des détails raffinés de l'écriture de Frédéric Chopin. L'équilibre est le maître mot de ce disque dans lequel dominent également l'amitié et la joie de jouer ensemble. Un disque rare.

Chopin and Beethoven: the piano concertos as chamber music. Since the invention of the piano by Bartolomeo Christofori, composers such as Mozart and Haydn have explored and cherished the new tones and dynamic possibilities that the instrument offers. At the beginning of the 19th century, the piano grew increasingly popular and more and more were built and sold.
