Notes & Reviews:

This Zig-Zag Territoires CD is the first by young, prize-winning American pianist Andrew Tyson, who has chosen to record the cycle of Frédéric Chopin's 24 Preludes, op. 28, appending half-a-dozen additional works by the composer in addition, including the commonly partnered Prelude, op. 45 and the three Mazurkas, op. 59. Mr. Tyson has been consistently recognized for his commanding and expressive performances, replete with imaginative interpretations and exceptional artistry. "... a real poet of the piano." (BBC Radio 3)

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Tyson delivers graceful, elegant interpretations of the Preludes. Along with his crystalclear melodies and tasteful rubato, his strengths are in executing gossamer light textures. Preludes 3 and 10 have a gorgeous. Prelude 11's phrasing is as delicate as the spun sugar on a croquembouche. The ethereal clarity he maintains in Prelude 16, in spite of the devilish speed he employs, testifies to his technical prowess. Prelude 1 is sweeping, showing Tyson's effortless command of the keyboard. I appreciate the straightforward rhythms. I would have liked him to unleash a little more storminess in Prelude 14 and Prelude 20. The outer sections of the 'Raindrop' Prelude are pristine. His Prelude 17 is one of the best I have recently heard.
