Notes & Reviews:

After his successful Deutsche Grammophon debut recording of Chopin Preludes, Rafal Blechacz returns to the composer who helped make him famous with this all-new recording of Chopin's Piano Concertos nos. 1 & 2. These two concertos, cornerstones of every pianist's repertory, are especially central to Rafal Blechacz's introduction to the world-stage. He performed the E minor concerto at the 2005 Chopin Competition and has used both works for numerable memorable debuts around the world. His affinity with Chopin runs deeper than just their shared nationality: Blechacz possesses an exceptional intelligence that gives him an in-depth understanding of the music he performs and a degree of perception that allows him to infallibly grasp the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of the compositions he interprets.

Notes & Reviews:
