Notes & Reviews:

As one of the youngest winners ever in the International Frederick Chopin Piano Competition in 1975, Krystian Zimerman went on to an international career and has performed with all major orchestras and conductors. For the first time on DVD, this 1987 film captures Zimerman at the height of his powers in riveting performances of Chopin and Schubert. "Fascinating visual confirmation of the purely acoustical impression of Zimerman’s Chopin recordings... In the Schubert, flawless pianism, satisfying conceptions, lucid and deft - plus superb piano sound quality." -FonoForum. "Zimerman’s approach to playing the piano has greatness written all over it. It has intensity, majesty, intimacy, daring, and simplicity, and above all insight." -The Times, London
