Album: "The Chopin concertos"

The Chopin concertos
As the most interpreted composer for piano, Chopin is always open to revision, but for the first time, it is a singular treat to hear Barenboim play these concertos. Indeed, it’s a surprise to learn that he has never recorded them before. Barenboim’s flame remains inextinguishable. Truly, he is a master and should be celebrated as such.
