Notes & Reviews:

Vladimir Ashkenazy, one of the greatest pianists of modern times, plays the twenty-four etudes, op. 10/25 of Chopin. These recordings were made in 1959 by the then 22-year-old pianist. With world triumphs still ahead, Ashkenazy was already in full possession of virtuosic and artistic piano mastery. 'The young pianist is not just an owner of phenomenally deft, strong and superbly trained fingers, he also wields a diverse and beautiful sound palette' wrote one reviewer at the time.

BBC Music Magazine, April 2014
This is quite a classic. Ashkenazy offers far more than virtuoso playing, though these is plenty; each piece is a beautifully shaped poem. Sound quality lets it down a little.
