'You will be hard pressed to find playing of such super-fine precision and sensitivity. This is undoubtedly one of the most crystalline and exclusive Chopin recitals I have heard for some time. Such pianism forbids even whispered comparisons' (Gramophone)

'One of the finest pianists of our time' (CDReview)

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Polonaise No 14 in G sharp minor was composed in 1822 and first published in 1864. Dominated by arpeggiated figuration and decoration (at the expense, arguably, of melody), its orbit is one essentially of elegance rather than impulse.
