Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Frédéric Chopin is a composer to whom Cyprien Katsaris has returned time and again, notably with his recordings of the complete Sonatas, Ballades, Preludes, Waltzes, Scherzos, and Polonaises and with his memorable "Homage to Chopin" recital at Carnegie Hall on October 17, 1999, the 150th anniversary of the composer's death. This new recording bears witness to Cyprien Katsaris' devotion to the prodigious pianist and composer. Distilled from various recitals, the program comprises a set of universally loved pieces garnished with lesser-known compositions and some rare transcriptions.

Fanfare Magazine - Lynn René Bayley
This is exactly the kind of recording that should be listened to - by force, if necessary - by all those publicity folks at labels big and small, from Decca and DG on down, who have somehow formed the opinion that Hot Young Pianist X is the next great genius of the keyboard. As fine as some of these players are, very few have the kind of seasoned authority one hears in this recital from Cyprien Katsaris. This is not merely good playing, not even great playing. It is playing so wholly wrapped up in the spirit of the composer that the performer disappears, and you find yourself listening to Chopin and not to "Katsaris," superb though he is.

Cyprien, if you see this review, know that you have issued a masterpiece. Words fail me in trying to describe just how great this disc is.
