This monumental achievement did much to shape a generation's understanding of Chopin. With its total lack of distracting mannerisms, its brilliant yet unostentatious virtuosity and its combination of simplicity and extreme sophistication it can never date.

Essential recording . . . An obvious library choice . . .
