Notes & Reviews:

This 4CD boxed set, "My Favorite Chopin", offers several distinctive performances of the poet of the piano's music carefully chosen from Näive's extensive catalog of past Chopin releases. Sublime music necessitates a sublime artist; the Etudes op. 25, the Préludes, op. 28 and the Second Sonata in B-flat minor, op. 35 receive the appropriate treatment from pianist Grigory Sokolov on the set's first two discs. The 4 Ballades and the Second Piano Concerto find Lise de la Salle in good company with conductor Fabio Luisi and the Staatskapelle Dresden. Finally, a rare treat for Chopin and jazz aficionados is an album of Chopin jazz covers by pianist Leszek Mozdzer.
