Yundi Li is being groomed for superstardom. He's got the looks, youth, and keyboard athleticism to fill that role, but on the basis of this all-Chopin disc (and his previous Chopin and Liszt recitals), he still lacks the interpretive maturity that translates into staying power. His B minor Scherzo, for example, comes off as excessively sectional, and its central section lacks poetry. Other works here fare better, but his attention appears focused on pianistic fluency and dazzling finger work, often at the expense of a full measure of emotional communication.

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.

"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."

All Horowitz fans will instantly love this recording from Carnegie Hall on November 16, 1975. They will gaze at the marvels of his Schumann, gasp at the miracles of his Liszt, and gape at the wonders of his Rachmaninov. His Chopin will astound them, his Debussy will amaze them, and his Moszkowski will astonish them. Jon Samuels' arduous editing will gratify them and RCA's assiduous sound will satisfy them. For all Horowitz fans, this release will be immensely welcome. For non-Horowitz fans, there is not much in this to love.

This is the second of Brilliant's box sets devoted to Russian recordings from Evgeny Kissin. Labeled as early, these live concert performances from 1984 to 1990 carry us from the day after Kissin turned 13 (Mozart Cto. #12 K. 414) to age 18 (Mozart Cto. #20, K. 466), with most readings clustering in the range of 1985-89. Russians were well aware of the marvel in their midst; the pianist's American breakthrough occurred in 1990 when he debuted at Carnegie Hall's centennial season.

Much of Samson François’s pianistic career was devoted to performing and recording the works of Frédéric Chopin. A musician to whom many Chopin scholars are indebted, François was famed for bringing the intricacies of Chopin’s piano works to life, in a way no performer had done before him. Also featuring the Monte-Carlo National Opera Orchestra, conducted by Louis Frémaux, this collection includes some of Chopin’s greatest masterpieces, performed with spellbinding musicality by the eminent French pianist.
