The Phillips label "Set Your Mood" contains classical music for any frame of mind, life event, setting or mood. Others in the series include "Mozart For Your Morning Commute" "Bach For Barbecue" "Baroque For Bathtime" "Beethoven For Book Lovers" "Tchaikovksy For Teatime" "Liszt For Lovers" "Puccini And Pasta" and countless of other delightful albums, each with
its own theme and each containing beautifully performed classical music. On this album, the music of Chopin is meant to accompany your romantic evening or your drinking champagne after dinner. The music of Chopin does effectively describe nocturnal scenes and has a very melancholy romanticism which is very internal and reflective. It's perfect ambiance music. If I owned an office I would pipe in Chopin for the Musak.
The selected pieces here are exquisite and some of Chopin's most beautiful works for piano, the instrument that he made entirely his own in the 19th century. Frederic Chopin, a shy, sickly Polish man, composed countless of nocturnes and preludes, all which bear a sad, introspective, wistful and evening feel. The famous Nocturne No. 2 in E Flat is on here, the so called "Murmurs Of the Seine" a romantic description of the moonlit Seine river. In other preludes, such as the "Raindrop" Chopin captured the sound of water and rain perfectly, as he does with some of his other works. There is fluidity, finesse and elegance in everything he wrote. The opening excerpt is the Larghetto from his Piano Concerto No. 2, a slow movement whose dreamy mood is absolutely breathtaking. It was for this movement and the following Berceuse In D Flat Major Opus 57 that I even bought this album.

Chopin has always been a favorite of mine, and Claudio Arrau is a superlatively genius pianist when it comes to playing Chopin. The Piano Concerto No. 2 in Fm is absolutely the most romantic, breathtaking piece I've ever heard. Without a doubt, this is one of my favorte CDs. Recently, I played the Nocturne in E-flat, and listening to Mr. Arrau's version really helped me to have a better sense of my rubato.

This CD is perfect if you want a sampling of Chopin's beautiful piano works. It really sets the right mood if you are planning a romantic evening, or just trying to relax after a long day. I was very pleasantly surprised by this whole series, and find both the selection of pieces and the performers who play them to be excellent. For anyone who hasn't heard Clauddio Arrau play before, or his interpetation of Chopin, you have got to hear this. I have been a fan ever since.

I found this CD on line after hearing a recording of a Chopin prelude on WCRB 102.5, the Boston classical station. I didn't know the pianist but when I found it to be Claudio Arrau, I had to hear more of him. I have kept Vladimir Ashkenazy in such high esteem in his piano interpretation of Chopin and Rachmaninov that I was floored to find in Arrau an even higher level of sensitivity to the emotion of the pieces, in this case, those of Chopin. It is true that the somewhat tacky cover and concept of saving Chopin for champagne and romance may be off-putting, but if this is the way to bring such wonderful recordings to more listeners, then I am all for it.
I can't begin to express the delight and even rapture I experience when I listen to this CD. I need to save it for special times, so it won't become too familiar to me.

Despite the somewhat shmaltzy title and cover, this CD is one to treasure. Arrau's interpretation of Chopin rivals in grace and tenderness the CDs of Ashkenazy. Try relaxing with this music after a stressful day...you'll be transported to a place of beauty and tranquility. Arrau perfectly understands the delicacy of a Chopin nocturne. Bravo!

I got this CD as a gift, and wasn't so sure how I'd like it. After listening to this music through both tumultuous and peaceful times in my life during the past year, I have to say I am a big fan.
Wonderfully and sensitively played, there is enough to the recordings to keep me coming back, yet the now familiar pieces are so calming. I would recommend this to anyone. It is like an Enya CD in that you can't listen to it ALL the time, but it's nice to have the option there when you want it.

I listen to this while commuting to and from work. I would have preferred the more romantic works of Chopin on the entire disk.
