Another extremely satisfactory remastered EMI 2-fer issue, includes Augustin Anievas' readings of the Waltzes and Impromptus paired with Andrei Gavrilov's essays of the Études.
At Juilliard Anievas was a pupil of the talented Eduard Steuermann--himself a protégé of Busoni, Humperdinck, and Schönberg.
Anievas' performances here are precious, pleasing, and precise.
Tchaikovsky Competition winner (1974), Muscovite virtuoso Gavrilov here delivers scintillating readings of Chopin's exacting Études.
