Chopin Waltzes Complete - Alex Szilasi

Chopin Waltzes Complete - Alex Szilasi

These performances from a few years ago.  Every now and then, I have to do something for the art that this blog is chiefly about; pianist; the art of the piano, both playing it, and anything and everything to do with the great music written for it.  Few know that there are more waltzes than usually show up in a Dover edition.  Henle's has them all.  Henle is my choice for any serious work on any of these.  I like the sound and character of this Pleyel piano too, don't you?  The pianist has some very good ideas concerning atmosphere and interpretations of some of the dreamier and dramatic passages.  It's not just the same often tired renditions we've maybe accustomed to.  This pianist seems to have picked up on the benefits of studying and playing Liszt too.  It shows to great benefit here.  Enjoy.
