Product Description

If you are already a fan of Ashkenazy's piano playing, then this CD may not be interesting to you. To my ears most of Ashkenazy's Chopin recordings have seemed sterile and lifeless, with all the right ideas but no passion behind them. So it's fascinating to return to this recording, among the few he made before leaving the USSR, to hear the pianist who aroused so much excitement when he was still in his teens. It's not the most mature Chopin playing, perhaps, but the impulse behind the playing is palpable. And the Liszt is spectacular! -- Leslie Gerber

This is simply the best recording of the Chopin Etudes. Ever.
Pollini's percussive touch doesn't sing, Rubinstein didn't record them and Richter didn't record them all (pity!)! I remember this recording on LP, and recently bought it used here at Amazon.com.
Ashkenazy's later recording for Decca/London is perhaps more polished, but it is not as heartfelt as this. I have always appreciated Ashkenazy's art. He is a great pianist and musician.
Legend has it that he played the Etude in Thirds in his audition for Ania Sumbatian, his teacher at the Moscow Central Music School for musically gifted children at the age of ten. After listening to this recording, I believe it.
If this recording becomes available again used or new, pick it up. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class May 2 2003
By Alex - Published on Amazon.com
This legendary recording is a must-buy for all pianophiles. It is Ashkenazy at his youthful best tearing effortlessly through the Etudes and giving a storming rendition of the Mephisto Waltz. To hear this inspired, top class, musical playing makes one wonder why Ashkenazy's performances were so boring in later years. Very hard to think of another recording of the Etudes that is as good as this one, Pollini's perhaps.....
