CHOPIN: Piano Works

Add To Wish List + £6.99 - Out of stock

This eleventh disc in the Naxos Moiseiwitsch Edition is devoted specifically to acoustic and electrical recordings of music by Chopin made from the beginning of the legendary pianist's career. It begins with his first published recording, Chopin's 'Berceuse, Op. 57', made on 10th May 1916. By the time Moiseiwitsch recorded the Impromptu in F sharp, Op. 36 in September 1921, he had made his d?®but in America and was a well-established and respected artist. Interestingly, take seven, which was issued in Britain, is some ten seconds shorter than take six, issued in America. Both may be heard here for comparison. Moiseiwitsch's first recording sessions using the superior electrical process were made in October 1925 but nothing was issued. From the session of 10th December, however, come his first electrical recordings of Chopin with the Scherzo in B flat minor. The improvement in sound quality is immediately noticeable.
