When Pogorelich did not make the finals of the 1980 Warsaw Competition (where they play exclusively Chopin), his response was to sign with Deutsche Grammophon for his first recording and he made it an all-Chopin affair. From his stunning opening take on Chopin's Sonata #2, to a Funeral March restored to its grandeur, to the breaktaking final moments of the Scherzo #3, Pogorelich announced to the music world that he'd arrived.

Berezovsky is a sadly under-rated player, even though he won the Tchakovsky Competition in 1990. His natural talent is given full vent in these Etudes. One must remember that these were studies written by Chopin, each one exploring a singular technical idea - the 'Revolutionary' a test of left-hand power and flexibility, Op.10 No.1 a study in right-hand stretches, etc. Thus in each piece, Berezovsky utilises a different aspect of his phenomenal technique and gives a demonstration of how they should be played. In the CD booklet, one critic accurately observes that Berezovsky 'knows there is plenty of time ahead of him'; and rightly so! In a musical world today where everyone thinks they need to flex their muscle in order to gain attention, Berezovsky carries on at his own pace, regardless. There is no need to play everything at breakneck speed as does Argerich where the tendency is to sink into a show of bad taste and pointless pyrotechnics.

L. Timofeyeva is a laureate of International competitions in Montreal and M. Long in Paris. Only a very mature musician can play F. Chopin’s Etudes, especially in a circle. Here L. Timofeyeva has brought out Chopin’s harmonious outlook and the wealth of light colors. Even rueful, tragic works have found their place in the gamut of feelings. Gentle lyricism – this is the main feature of L. Timofeyeva readings. Soft, winsome sound, heartfelt emotion, love of romantic, expressive melody – these features of the pianist’s gift have determined the interpretations of these works.

This new recording presents the three Piano Sonatas by Frédéric Chopin, large-scale works by a composer by was primarily a master of the small form, the Nocturne, Ballade, Prelude, Mazurka or Impromptu. Chopin’s first Sonata is from his youth, an ambitious work in semiclassical style but already bearing Chopin’s characteristics in its lyricism and freedom. The second Piano Sonata is the most famous, including the iconic Funeral March, a passionate 4-movement work of staggering originality. The third Sonata is the most forward-looking in its intense chromatism and advanced harmony.

France's Naïve label has heavily promoted the career of the young pianist Lise de la Salle, who was 22 when this recording was made. Her fashion-spread good looks fit with Naïve's design concepts, and she has the ability to deliver the spontaneous, unorthodox performances the label favors. How does she fare in a field extremely crowded with Chopin recitals? Her performances certainly aren't derivative of anyone else, and this live recording from the Semperoper in Dresden (you get a one-minute track of just applause at the end) has a good deal of attention-getting flair. The standout feature of de la Salle's performance, in the four ballades at least, is her orientation toward slow tempos, inventively deployed.
