Performed by Maurizio Pollini (piano)

After winning the International Chopin Competition, Maurizio Pollini adds an important new chapter to his ongoing interpretation with some of the composer’s most famous late works.

On this album, the “grand master” (BBC music magazine) interprets some of Chopin’s largescale masterpieces, including six Mazurkas and three Waltzes that he has never recorded before. “I’m in love with Chopin – his music never ceases to amaze me.” – Maurizio Pollini

The Guardian wrote just two weeks ago:

“It’s easy to understand why Pollini should have been drawn back to these late pieces, with their harmonic daring and structural subtleties. He gives a fascinating account of the Barcarolle, austere and detached, but also intensely focused.”

Here is Mr. Pollini performing the wonderful Nocturne number 8 by Chopin:
