Editorial Reviews

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Chopin's birth, Hyperion has excerpted some of the finest performances from Garrick Ohlsson's complete Chopin project, originally recorded for the Arabesque label and reissued on Hyperion as a 16-CD boxed set. These discs include some of the finest contemporary Chopin playing and include definitive performances of the complete etudes and mazurkas.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By C. Pontus T. on March 2, 2010
With that title, it almost sounds as if the reviewer would like the reviewed item to be better than what he actually finds it to be. Regrettably, as much as I revere Chopin's piano works, my enthusiasm for his chamber works is somewhat lukewarm in comparison. Why is that?

I think the chief reason is that Chopin was a master of small- to medium-scale forms, whereas his large-scale compositions rather survive courtesy their melodic and harmonic mastery than their formal merits. This is particularly true for the Op 8 Piano Trio, written in 1828-9 when Chopin was still a student, which is seldom programmed either in concert or on disc. It also suffers from often weird balances between the instruments--the violin in particular often sounds more like a viola; indeed, Frank Cooper writes in the original liner notes that 'Chopin later even wondered whether a viola might have accorded better with the cello'. Instead, as in the two Concertos, the piano very much dominates the show. Regrettably, I find few memorable moments in the second and third movements--the former dubbed Scherzo but sounding nothing like one. The first movement is indeed darkly pleasant, but the keeper is the energetic Rondo-Finale in the trademark Chopinian style of Slavic dance rhythms. Ohlsson is joined by Leila Josefowicz and Carter Brey in a performance that is pleasantly committed, if a tad low-key (especially in the two inner movements).

The sonority of the cello clearly appealed to Chopin--probably because it blends so beautifully with the middle register of the piano; all the chamber music he wrote features the cello.
