Notes & Reviews:
"With his commanding technique and unflagging sense of direction, coupled with exceptional self-discipline in matters of rubato, this French pianist plays with a classical authority always commanding respect …" wrote Gramophone of François-René Duchâble in Chopin. His approach was endorsed by none other than Arthur Rubinstein: the master pianist, whose name remains synonymous with the works of the Polish composer, became his great mentor. This 6-CD set represents a treasury of Chopin's music, interpreted by a musician unafraid of challenging preconceptions.
