CHOPIN Fryderyk

….. But before it is again relegated to the odd storage cabinet, the following exceptional interpretation of Chopin’s f-moll piano concerto, opus 21 is most memorable. A refined piece of chamber music with brilliant sound stripes well suited to more intimate settings.  Roger Woodward’s clear, if not cool keyboard sound (he plays a Bosendorfer) mixes suspensefully with the well balanced sound of the Alexander String Quartet. To top it all off Beethoven’s Piano Quartet follows.)
