Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth, Hyperion has excerpted some of the finest performances from Garrick Ohlsson's complete Chopin project, originally recorded for the Arabesque label and reissued on Hyperion as a 16-CD boxed set. These discs include some of the finest contemporary Chopin playing and include definitive performances of the complete etudes and mazurkas.
