Daniil Trifonov (piano), with Sergei Babayan (piano)
Mahler Chamber Orchestra, Mikhail Pletnev
By and large, Pletnev’s scoring is unobtrusive and does not overly distract, though the woodwind ensemble at the opening of the finale sounds like Chopin hijacked by Tchaikovsky. One thing is... — More…
Ingrid Fliter (piano)
Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Jun Märkl
True, she sails perilously close to over-sentimentalising the opening Romanza...but Fliter plays with grace and heartfelt sincerity - abetted by some lovely duetting with the SCO's bassoonist... — More…
Martha Argerich (piano)
Montreal Symphony Orchestra, Charles Dutoit
Martha Argerich's first commercially released recordings of the Chopin concertos were for DG; No 1 in 1968, No 2 in 1978. Here she revisits both concertos and offers an act of re-creative daring,... — More…

Daniel Barenboim (piano)

The quality, both of DG's chosen recordings and the set's general presentation, is just about as good as it gets. To have in one box such wonders as Zimmerman's Ballades, Pollini's Etudes, Pires's... — More…
Friedrich Gulda (piano)
London Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Adrian Boult
These recordings…are a fitting tribute to his idiosyncratic artistry: immediate, vibrant, original and at times utterly volcanic…he shapes the melodic architecture of the more songful preludes... — More…
