Notes & Reviews:

Maurizio Pollini, one of today's most exceptional pianists, began his musical career by winning the Chopin competition in 1960. Since then, the works of Chopin have held a pre-eminent place in his performances and recordings. Following up on the success of his release of Chopin Nocturnes in 2005, Pollini now records an all-new recital of Chopin masterpieces. He has re-recorded the famous Sonata no. 2 in B flat minor, op. 35 (recorded in 1984) and the Ballade no. 2 in F, op. 38 (recorded in 1999) and added the Mazurkas op. 33, Waltzes op. 34 and Impromptu no. 2 in F sharp major, op. 36. All of these works were composed in a relatively late phase of Chopin's career and display the great variety of his art.
