Chopin: Concerto For Piano And Orchestra No. 1 In E Minor Op. 11 With Nelson Goerner On Piano
A tour-de-force of piano playing
Chopin, though originally from Poland, made his home in Paris, where he is now buried in La Madeleine. This French-influenced work, with the harmonised runs up and down the breadth of the piano, is an impressive and imposing piece. Goerner’s playing is masterful, capturing the essence of Chopin’s Romanticism in every keystroke. Listen hard to pick out the french-influences.
