Notes & Reviews:

The incomparable master of the piano, Maurizio Pollini, celebrates the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth with a selection of his favorite recordings. Pollini has personally selected each track of this compilation using recordings from his vast Deutsche Grammophon catalog. Maurizio Pollini won the International Chopin Competition in 1960 and for the past 50 years has been a mainstay of the recital stage. Pollini is a Deutsche Grammophon exclusive artist and has continuously released new recordings since his first in 1971.
