Chopin, Stephen Hough - The Complete Waltzes download album

In the hands of brilliant English pianist Stephen Hough, the complete waltzes of Frédéric Chopin are polished miniatures of great precision, elegant phrasing, balanced contrasts, and sparkling expression, and they easily stand out among the many recordings issued or reissued since the bicentennial of the composer's birth. That Hyperion waited until the hubbub died down and released this album in 2011 seems understandable, if there were any fears critics might miss it in the rush, though it plainly would have ranked among the best discs of 2010, the year it was in fact recorded.

Recorded in the Concert Hall, Wyastone Estate, Monmouth, on 17-20 October 2010.

Only 2 left in stock (more on the way). Only 18 left in stock (more on the way). In his Waltzes, Chopin brought a new level of sophistication to this popular dance form. The disc is rounded off with the famous E flat major Nocturne, which gives a more lyrical expression to the meter of the waltz. These illuminating and compelling performances are not to be missed. A Chopin proponent of the first rank. -Audiophile Audition.
