The Chopin Collection

I saw a program recently about this Pianist. I had often thought that his conception of Chopin was very robust. ..muscular some would say, and the show went some way to explain how he came to his interpretations. Rubinstein looks to have been a fun kind of bloke, despite his commentary to the contrary!I grock that Ashkenazy may be last word, to date, on Chopin. However, Rubinstein’s are such transcendant essays into these pivotal works, that. …who really minds that Ashekenazy may be, miraculously , “better”. Bullescheisse!I have heard irredemably soppy Chopin, speed metal Chopin, Dreamy soporific Chopin. Not here. A collection recorded over a very long time, and some telling re-dos. It all brims over with his joy in life, (which he says was not always there)The recordings are very good-excellent, the performances first rate, the transcriptions good, and the note-book illuminating. I think we should all have this set and one other, easy at this price. Rubinstein thought he was not up to the Etudes. Gasp! Check it out!

A classic collection of 11 CDs that compiles every recording that the late Arthur Rubinstein released on the RCA label from 1946-1967! Many aficionados consider these definitive performances of Chopin repertoire, produced by the legendary Grammy award winner Max Wilcox and presented in both monaural and stereo recordings.


The Chopin Collection Review

I love Chopin’s music and when my copy of his Nocturnes finally had to be replaced, I did a little reading and decided to purchase the Rubinstein collection. It is so absolutely beautiful: Rubinstein’s interpretations are breathtakingly beautiful. Not being a musicologist, I never thought I’d be able to hear the subtleties, but they’re all there. This collection, even though I had to wait a long time for it because it was mailed from Japan, is such a worthwhile addition to my life. -Read Reviews-
