A masterful performance of Frédéric Chopin’s piano scherzos Nos. 2-4. Commentators emphasize not only the captivating beauty of the lyrical moments in Chopin’s scherzos, but above all the intensity and profundity of the emotions expressed, at times very violent, and also highly volatile. The principle of employing sudden contrasts, the intense suggestiveness of the musical gestures (especially at the beginning of a work) and the culmination of the narrative in virtually expressionistic codas would seem to be the most characteristic features of the Chopin scherzo.
The pack includes the following items:
- Chopin, Piano Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat minor, Op. 31 (8:40)
- Chopin, Piano Scherzo No. 3 in C-sharp minor, Op. 39 (7:56)
