Notes & Reviews:

Janne Mertanen has become known primarily as a Chopin interpreter and his repertoire does indeed cover almost all the piano music by this composer. He won the International Chopin Competition in 1992 and two of his recordings have won the 6th International Record Competition Grand Prix du Disque Frédéric Chopin 2005.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Sure, the strings and brass are lovely: they're so sonorous and deep! Anytime a wind instrument is playing, though, it feels as though your ear has been dragged next to its mouthpiece.
