Notes & Reviews:

Ashkenazy won second prize at the Frdric Chopin Competition in Warsaw (1955), first prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels (1956) and shared first prize in the Tchaikovsky Competition (1962), after which his career took off worldwide. This collection is devoted to Chopin, whose works have been central to Ashkenazy's career and for whose music he has won so many awards. The Etudes in particular are legendary and sought after having not been readily available since the 1950s.
