Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason
In his first recording, Pianist Jean-Paul Gasparian had shown a healthy technique that is essential to play the music of Russian giants. But his strong play is also sensible. In his second disc that is now dedicated to Chopin, the young performer confirms these qualities. Especially in the four Ballads, true bravura pieces in which Jean-Paul Gasparian never fails. And if he shows rigor, he also gives himself the lyricism and beauty of these pages, from Nocturnes to Waltzes and Polonaises. His elegant expression and full sound make this new album a second essential milestone in the discography of the young pianist and more generally in that of Chopin. © Little Tribeca

Chopin turned the Scherzo into a new form of piano composition: an independent virtuoso work which he laced with drama, Polish folk song, tranquillity and nuance. With their rhythmic lilt and filigree ornamentation the Impromptus are infused with Romantic freedom, while the Allegro de concert, Op. 46 was originally conceived as a movement for a projected piano concerto but was instead revised for solo piano. © Naxos

Hi-Res Booklet Distinctions 5 de Diapason
The four ballades of Chopin, more than the somewhat inaccurately named piano sonatas, are the composer's most complex works, both structurally and emotionally, and performances of them differ in substantial ways. They may emphasize sheer virtuosity, leading with Motorik rhythms in the big tunes toward blazing passages like the coda of the Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52. The Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes takes a different direction. He says that he has avoided playing the Ballades until he felt ready, and indeed his work here differs from his rather cool, clean way with Chopin in the past. "This is very personal music," he told Joshua Barone. "It’s not so often that you hear such a confessional quality: Give space for that when you listen to it." It's good advice: Andsnes' Ballades are ongoing monologues, with meter deemphasized and the virtuoso passages coming as explosions of passion that, as often as not, don't lead anywhere. This is arch-Romantic pianism of the best kind, even if it's rather low-key, and it's enhanced by the structure of the program: nocturnes serve as entr'actes between the four ballades. Sample one of these (perhaps the Nocturne in C minor, Op. 48, No. 1) to hear Andsnes' ability to put you in a state of suspended linear time here. Sony's sound from the studios of Radio Bremen is beautifully suited to Andsnes' reflective, intimate aims. The omission of the Ballade No. 4 from the booklet track list in the CD copy is a notable editorial flaw, but this is highly recommended. © TiVo

Chopin was an absolute master of “small forms” (preludes, ballads, nocturnes, mazurkas, impromptus, études, polonaises), which often overshadowed his larger works such as the three piano sonatas and the sonata for cello and piano which are brilliant but are often criticised for being disparate pieces strung together. Yet, upon closer examination, many musicologists have found that these works are carefully structured and as accomplished as the classical models established by Haydn and Beethoven.In this recital for Mirare, the Russian-Lithuanian pianist Lukas Geniušas has once again set his sights on Chopin after his interpretation of Chopin’s twenty-four Etudes (for Dux Records) in 2013 was highly praised. Two years later, the release of his monographic album dedicated to the Sonata No. 2 in B-flat minor and the Concerto in E minor by the Chopin Institute in Warsaw (Narodowy Instytut Fryderyka Chopin), was once again a success.Having studied at the Moscow Frederic Chopin College of Music Performing, the brilliant young Lukas Geniušas now remains loyal to his favourite composer. He leads up to Sonata No. 3 by playing a mix of eleven Mazurkas, like walking down an impressive avenue of lime trees leading to a stately home. His great technique and remarkable sensitivity allow him to pick up on even the most subtle and delicate details of Chopin’s music. © François Hudry/Qobuz

In her seminal release for Rubicon Classics, Sonya Bach turns to Chopin’s masterworks. Over 170 years since the composer’s death, Chopin’s Etudes remain cemented in history as feats of technical ingenuity and melodic invention, which makes them core repertoire for any major pianist. Romantic in their nature and yet forward looking with bold harmonies and cross-rhythms paving the way for Impressionism, the Etude is synonymous with Chopin. Sonya Bach’s nimble fingered precision and expressive touch makes this fresh interpretation of old classics a delight for any listener. © Rubicon Classics
