CHOPIN, F.: Barcarolle / Nocturnes Nos. 2, 19 / Scherzos Nos. 1, 3, 4 (Moiseiwitsch, Vol. 13) (1939-1952)

Benno Moiseiwitsch was born in Odessa, ‘the cradle of Russian pianism’, in 1890, and at the age of nine won the Anton Rubinstein prize. This third volume of his Chopin recordings covers a ten year period from the start of World War II, including two versions of the Barcarolle, one of which was unreleased on 78rpm. The pianist’s exquisite singing tone is perfectly captured and he creates powerful and impassioned climaxes while never sacrificing his impeccable taste, style and elegance. As an appendix we include one of Moiseiwitsch’s most famous recordings: the Scherzo from Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream arranged for solo piano by Rachmaninov.
