Using the new Polish National Chopin Edition, acclaimed pianist Eldar Nebolsin and Poland’s national orchestra conducted by the renowned Polish conductor Antoni Wit, here present fresh interpretations of Chopin’s great works for piano and orchestra. The Second Piano Concerto was written before the first and completed in 1830, the year in which the composer set out for Vienna and then Paris. Chopin’s Variations on Là ci darem la mano, bear witness to his admiration for Mozart, instilled by his earliest teacher, the Bohemian Wojciech Żywny. The Grande Polonaise brillante in E flat, Op. 22, was written in Vienna, and later augmented with the introductory Andante spianato.


   




Review By Classic FM,March 2011

The best new recordings of all six of Chopin’s works for piano and orchestra come at a bargain price (Naxos has also issued the First Piano Concerto, Fantasia on Polish Airs and Krakowiak). The acoustic is a shade boomy and Antoni Wit’s Warsaw Phil players veer towards the workmanlike, but Nebolsin carries all before him with sparkling, life-enhancing playing. Particularly fine are the earliest and last works that Chopin wrote for this medium: the rarely heard Variations (1827) and Grande polonaise brillante (1835) both staking a claim as the new benchmark.
