Yes, it is already March 1, 2016! And today is the birthday of Frederic Chopin, who was born on 03/01/1810.
A new recording of Chopin’s Piano Concerto number 1 will become available later this month, clearly as a celebration of Chopin’s creative life.
And while the Concerto #1 has become a “War Horse”, because it is performed so frequently, I find that I do not get tired of it, as long as the performer plays it in a lyrical and authentic way.
Pianist Grigory Sokolov has earned the admiration of millions, because his performances are so moving and so impressive. this recording will be no exception.
Here is Grigory Sokolov performing Chopin’s Sonata number 2, Op. 35
