Notes & Reviews:

More than any other instrument, the piano was Chopin's passion, and perhaps more than any other composer before him, he understood its technique and drew inspiration from its character. Two of his early piano concertos rank among his first truly timeless masterpieces. Jan Simon, a Czech pianist with many years of experience on major international concert stages, has taken on the challenges presented by these works, and under his fingers Chopin's music flows with lightness, confidence and bravura, as if the work were a momentary inspiration.
