Notes & Reviews:

"...This is by no means just another recording of Chopin's Ballades. It stands out for a number of reasons, chief among them is the sheer freshness and individuality of Ashkenazy's playing." -Gramophone. This short review was printed on a sticker attached to this release in the Decca "Legendary Legends" series. The performances are all you could ask for, and the new 24-bit remastering does much to enhance ones enjoyment of these wonderful readings.
