Format: Audio CD
Still my favorite piano album of all time. I moved a few years ago and lost all my CD's, and because of financial problems have only recently begun to repurchase many recordings. When I bought this again and listened to it after a few years away, I could have cried. It was like meeting an old love, and none of the thrill was gone. She was as beautiful as ever. Rubinstein's sense of rubato is perfect; affective and full of rhythm within rhythm, yet only consciously noticeable when you carefully examine the playing. Totally natural. Like Liszt said of Chopin's rubato, "See that tree? See how the leaves move yet the shape stays the same?" The tone is bold and sharp, proving that Chopin's music was not to be maudlinly caressed as the stereotype of a weak, tubercular genius has perpetuated. This is music to lay in the dark with, not to sleep, but to ride the night blanket away in.

Format: Audio CD
The whole set of interpreters of F. Chopin can be divided into two groups. Group 1 consists of only one interpreter and this is Artur Rubinstein. Group 2 consists of all the others. If anyone wants to hear the way Chopin himself played his compositions just listen to his Nocturnes played by Artur Rubinstein. Yes, I know that we never heard Chopin playing his compositions but we don't have to do it ... just listen to Rubinstein ! Why do I, and many others like me, believe so ? Well ... it's because we are convinced that Artur Rubinstein is the reincarnation of Fryderyk Chopin ! Of course I am kidding, but for those who do believe in reincarnation my statement could be absolutely correct. Really, Rubinstein's Chopin lies in another dimension. This CD set is absolutely gorgeous !

Complete nocturnes, from one of the best interpreter of Chopin of past century! I've found this interpretations are a bit slower than some previous recordings of Rubinstein, that I haven't heard yet.

In my opinion, these recordings are among the finest example of musical expression ever recorded. That's a big statement, but I do not feel I am being overly dramatic with these comments. I have listened to many other recordings of the Nocturnes by some very fine pianists, but to my ears nothing touches Rubenstein.
Perhaps it was his deeper understanding of the Polish experience(both Chopin and Rubenstein being from Poland), or just his approach to the piano itself(doesn't soften the edges of the music the way Ashkenazy does)- but for whatever reason Arthur will always remain the "King of the Nocturnes."

Few recordings of clasical instrumental music -let alone piano- can satisfy the mad need of the Operatic Maniac for Gigantic Emotions... this is one of those recordings...
Rubisntein "sings" through his piano with the most direct way as the editorial reviewer says directly to the heart... The Nocturnes Op27 and 48 hold such beauty that it is as if you can "touch" the music or the emotions in the air...
I deeply love the slower tempi as I am a believer that good music should be played as slow as the melody permits...
This is a recording that should exist in all libraries.
