Notes & Reviews:

When Ivo Pogorelich was not admitted to the final round at the 1980 Chopin piano competition in Warsaw, Martha Argerich resigned from the jury in protest, thereby catapulting the young pianist to immediate worldwide fame. This new coupling presents part of the debut album of works by Chopin that Ivo Pogorelich recorded shortly afterwards - its centrepiece, the B flat minor Sonata, has already been released in the originals series - together with his entire second album, which immediately courted controversy with its provocative juxtaposition of Beethoven's timeless mature masterpiece with two of Schumann's most spectacularly virtuoso creations.
