Performer Conductor Ensembles Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The acclaimed Polish pianist Ewa Kupiec, along with her compatriot, conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski and the Saarbrucken Radio Symphony Orchestra in an insightful program of Chopin's first two piano concertos, written when he was only 20. The youthful joie de vivre of the first concerto is contrasted by the emerging hints of maturity of the second and Chopin's use of what was then, innovative harmonic structures. Includes a special note by Stanislaw Skrowaczewski on the performance history of the works.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
The orchestra and conducting are consistently wonderful. She just plows thru it - with great accuracy and bright tone.
