Notes & Reviews:

Maria Joao Pires, grand dame of the piano world with her deep devotion to understanding the personality of the music which she performs, has performed three times during the Chopin and His Europe Festival at the invitation of the Fryderyk Chopin Institute. The recordings on this release come from her concerts in 2010 when she performed the Piano Concerto in F minor op. 21 with the Sinfonia Varsovia Orchestra under the baton of Christopher Warren-Green) and in 2014 when she performed a recital including, among other items, the Nocturnes presented here. This release is a presentation of- by nature- completely different interpretations, which nonetheless form an extraordinarily coherent artistic whole. Superb creations displaying the most beautiful side of pianistic art.
