Abstract:

Chopin gave his soul to the piano, creating for it music of unearthly beauty, and teaching it to sing. Though he abandoned his own performing career early, his flawless technique gave him an intimate knowledge of the instrument's potential both for virtuosic brilliance and expressive subtlety. From the bravura of his early salon showpieces to the aching nostalgia of his mazurkas and the rich lyricism of his late nocturnes, Chopin's music reaches straight to the heart. He was truly the 'poet of the piano'. In this beautiful 2CD collection ABC Classics has brought together favourite Chopin works for solo piano.
