Notes & Reviews:

This third volume of Alfred Cortot’s late recordings (1949-51) proves once again that their neglect has been unjustified. Here we have a superb selection of popular works by Chopin - the composer with whom Cortot was most identified - that showcase the pianist’s trademark lyrical playing to the full. Of particular interest are the six 1951 titles which have not yet appeared on any CD transfer. The program is filled out with a splendid 1950 performance of Mendelssohn’s 'Variations serieuses,' another Cortot favorite.
