Item# CD044

Product Description

The critic of France Musicale wrote of Chopin's playing, "...it appears impossible that just two hands can create effects of swiftness so charming and so natural." Today, the same statements can be said of Earl Wild. In this recording, his truly phenomenal technique is readily evident. This performance of some of Chopin's most important contributions to the piano literature calls us back to the time when Chopin astounded his audiences in intimate salons. This is Chopin's music as Chopin intended it to be performed.
