Chopin: Piano Concertos (CD)

Current Stock:
Martino Tirimo, Feodor Glushchenko, Philharmonia Orchestra

***”[Martino] Tirimo’s [recording of the Chopin piano concertos] ranks alongside Perahia and Zimerman… poetic feeling paramount. … [E]xquisite delicacy … spontanteity in every bar… musing reverie, scintillatingly alive… strong orchestral support and sparkling dance rhythms.”—Penguin Guide

In 1994, Martino Tirimo, then a relatively little-known pianist, bowled over the critics with his recording of the two Chopin Piano Concertos — and garnered an international following as a result. This hard-to-find recording returns to international availability on Alto — at a value price!
