Album Summary

>Godowsky, Leopold : 22 Studies on Chopin's Etudes, for the left hand alone
Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

American pianist Ivan Ili c has recorded his second CD for French label Paraty, entitled 22 Chopin Studies by Leopold Godowsky. Godowsky was a celebrity in his day: Artur Rubinstein said that "it would take him 500 years" to acquire Godowsky's technique. But following Godowsky's death in 1938, his compositions were largely ignored until the year 2000, when super-virtuoso pianists such as Marc-André Hamelin and Boris Berezovsky began to record and perform his works in concert. Ivan Ili c is the latest pianist to rise to the formidable challenge. His album focuses on the 22 Studies for the left hand alone, considered among the most difficult pieces ever written for the instrument.
