Master pianist Maurizio Pollini turned 70 on January 5th, 2012 and DG are celebrating this milestone birthday with a new album of breath-taking Chopin. Pollini’s Chopin recordings are his best-sellers – the complete Nocturnes, released in 2005, have sold more than 100,000 CDs to date.

Chopin: Preludes is a birthday programme of newly recorded solo works: Preludes op.28, four Mazurkas op.30, two Nocturnes op.27, and the Scherzo no.2 op.31. Pollini often feature Chopin’s works in his solo recitals – The Guardian raved, “... he still plays Chopin with the ease that floored even Rubinstein more than 50 years ago ...”

“His sense of phrasing, structure and pacing is undimmed...There are other accounts of the 24 Preludes that are more impassioned, more vividly imagined and coloured, but few are more pure or devoted. Recorded sound is excellent. The fingers are not entirely all they used to be in terms of nimbleness, but that isn't too intrusive.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2013 ****

“The best of it, especially the B flat minor Scherzo, is superb, the virtuosity effortless, the grip on the formal structure utterly secure, but elsewhere...there's sometimes a chilly relentlessness about the playing, an impatience almost, that keeps the music at a distance.” The Guardian, 1st November 2012 ****

Vanessa Perez (piano)

This new recording of the complete Preludes of Frederick Chopin represents the debut on Telarc Classics of the highly regarded young Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez. In recent years she has been championed as one of the best young musical talents on the scene by the likes of legendary pianist Claudio Arrau and the great conductor Zubin Mehta.

Vanessa Perez is a product of the same energised musical culture in Venezuela that produced such international stars as conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Gabriela Montero. In 2009 she performed alongside star violinist Joshua Bell in Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’ on his “At Home with Friends” album for Sony Classical. She also worked with Jan Vogler on Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango and other pieces for the cellist’s 2008 album “Tango”, also released by Sony. In 2005 she produced a solo album for VAI that featured Chopin’s four Ballades, pieces from Albéniz’s Ibería and a work by contemporary composer Suzanne Farrin.

Perez makes her Telarc Classics debut with an all-Chopin collection that includes the 24 Preludes Op. 28, and some other popular pieces, among them the Barcarolle in F sharp major and the Fantasie in F minor.

“The surging way she plays the opening Prelude suggests pleasure in the sheer physicality of performance; the defiant dourness of the second suggests a personal vision...I suspect Perez is at heart a rationalist, not a Romantic.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 *****

“by the time we reach the F sharp minor Prelude (No. 13), we are listening to playing of real depth and poetry. If the 'Raindrop' Prelude will be too drawn out for some tastes, no such reservation can be applied to her scintillating execution of the treacherous B flat minor...All in all, a serious contender” Gramophone Magazine, August 2012

Gunther Rost (organ)

Chopin’s 24 Preludes Op.28 are written in the tradition of J S Bach and this work is particularly attractive to organists. The pieces have been adapted for organ, but Gunther Rost has not changed the musical texts. He performs on the Seifert organ in the Church of the Virgin Mary in Kevelaer which is the largest romantic German organ in the world.
