*****

“But this recital of Chopin is intensely inspired from first note to last… Michelangeli… begins with the largest work in the programme, the Funeral March Sonata, played with precision but extremely flexible tempos, and a vast dynamic range. It is all great, but the way Michelangeli plays the whirlwind last movement is stunning. Despite his undemonstrativeness, seeing him adds to the intensity of the experience. Only his hands move, with extraordinary seeming individual wills in each of his fingers.”
