A ‘scherzo’ may be a joke, but Chopin’s Scherzi are not to be laughed at: indeed, they are highly virtuosic and require performers with the utmost skill. Within their complexity, though, is hidden some of the most sensitive and tender music Chopin ever composed.

This release presents one of the best recordings of the 4 Scherzi by Chopin, as played by Ivan Moravec. Moravec recorded this Chopin recital in 1989 in the USA. Moravec is a “pianist’s pianist”, someone who combines deep intellectual musicality, passion and a superb command of keyboard. He is counted among today’s greatest living pianists, respected and admired by audiences all over the world. Featuring the 4 Scherzi, and a selection of Mazurkas and Etudes.

Recorded in 1989 at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall, New York State, USA. Booklet contains liner notes on the music and Chopin. - Brilliant Classics, (edited from notes.)
