Artur Pizarro, who won the Leeds International Competition in 1990 and already has made a number of distinguished recordings, can be heard on this Linn release oddly labeled Frédéric Chopin Reminiscences
. The two major works are the A-flat Polonaise and Scherzo No. 2, along with four each of waltzes, mazurkas and nocturnes, plus Fantasie-Impromptu. It's a fine collection very well played on a Blüthner grand piano recorded in England's Potton Hall in June 2004. Piano sound is bigger than life on this well-filled SACD.
