This recording was originally issued on Athene in 1997 and proved extremely popular. Now re-issued at mid price, it remains a unique record of Chopin’s very earliest keyboard works and those from the end of his life, played on a period square piano by Collard & Collard (c.1836) by one of Britain’s most respected and eminent pianists.
