Performance:   Sonics:  
I do not agree with the Polly Nomial's reviews.
In my opinion, this is a wonderful performance on an antique piano, with a worm sound and a limited dynamic, as Chopin had.

F. Chopin had a little sound (he didn't use to play more than mezzo forte) but beautiful, noble,
never aggressive or visheral, always elegant and full of colours...

I think this performances is closer to the spirit and the style of Chopin, much more than modern performances with big Orchestras and aggressive modern pianos.

The time is flexible with many rubati, as Chopin exactly wrote in many of his letters.

This CD has another different perspective, not comparable with symphonic performances.
I strongly recommend this CD, very beautiful...
