Historic and Revelatory Playing
Chopin Ballades & Scherzos I was fortunate enough to be able to scrimp together enough money to purchase all of the Rubinstein Chopin recordings in the late 1950s and early '60s. Chopin Ballades & Scherzos I and friends would play these at one anothers homes and marvel at what we had been fortunate enough to discover. Chopin Ballades & Scherzos This feeling remains intact with a re-hearing of the new mastering of these great piano pieces. Chopin Ballades & Scherzos The sound is 46 years old (recorded 1959) and will challenge any recording done today! The sound is clean, clear, precise, and without piano "wobble" as could occur in older LPs. The playing is, of course, world class and very romantic. The critics have had at Rubinstein in the past decade or more as being too sweet, too romantic, and heavens knows what. There are other great Chopin recordings of the Ballads and Scherzos, but this man's playing is simply so comfortable and "right" that no one should be disappointed in hearing him, especially at this great price and wonderful sound! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
