Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The internationally active Japanese pianist Dai Asai showcases his love of Chopin in this audiophile recording of the legendary and beloved master's works. The repertoire is performed on a Steinway Concert Grand D Hamburg and recorded with state of the art equipment and lossless techniques for the most natural dynamic and excellent sound quality.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
I quickly settled into this approach and appreciated how natural and straightforward it makes the music sound. Even in the few places he plays cleanly - he does make a good effort to articulate all the notes in the runs using a nice spicatto.
