Being a proud owner of the complete original Arabesque Recordings incarnations, I don't really have any intention of buying this box--other than as a safe copy for my safe deposit box--or a possible freeze down. The reasons?: (1) Chopin is the greatest piano composer the world has seen; (2) Garrick Ohlsson is the greatest Chopin interpreter in the stereo era; (3) this is one of the most valuable complete composer cycles ever, notwithstanding the fact that the closest competition is limited--Biret being about as complete (save the chamber works and songs) but still uncompetitive on all accounts, the DG and Brilliant Classics complete cycles being spread over various good and less good pianists, Ashkenazy and Magaloff including the solo piano works only, and Rubinstein, Francois and Arrau being collections rather than complete surveys.

To make a rather long story short, Chopin's piano music has been my great musical love since 12 years of age. I did play a fair proportion of it during my teenage years; I've been listening to it, thinking of it, humming it, studying it and in every single aspect of the word cherishing it ever since.

I must try to be moderate, considering the scope and guidelines of this review format, though awfully difficult it is: I have never heard Chopin's piano music played with such beauty, naturalness, command and total perfection! Mr Ohlsson is obviously born with some kind of unique sense of how Chopin's music is to be realised. Superficially considering some of his tempos, rubatos and dynamics, they may appear a trifle self-confident or exaggerated; however, hearing them in their context, they always sound perfectly natural, motivated and infinitely beautiful--or, in short, perfect if there ever was any such thing in music interpretation.

In the wake of the coming of the 'Chopin year', one is always tempted to hunt for Chopin recordings.
As the Chinese saying goes, Garrick Ohlsson's comnplete Chopin Works box set is a 'single statement' (yi jia zhi yan) on the composer's output, and should by no means be ignored.
after listening to most of the 16 discs in the set by now, I would add that this set could not be ignored by (1) piano music lovers; and (2) Chopin followers.
Ohlsson's Chopin isn't everybody's cup of tea. His approach to Chopin is what I'd term 'cerebral'. That is not to say that he is 'cold' or 'mechancial'; rather, his approach is never flowery or melodramatic, nor 'soft' or 'willowy'. For the Parisians, Ohlsson's Chopoin may be a trifle too 'basic'. For 'salon Chopin' lovers, Ohlsson's can be too 'rural'. However,Ohlsson's interpretations are nonetheless convincing - he goes right back to the compositions' basics - the harmonics, the rhythms, and not just the melodic lines.
One is awe-stricken by his Mazurkas, with the lilt of the rural dances so vividly brought out as NO other pianist ever did.
His two concerti prove beyond a doubt that Ohlsson is rightly called 'the contemproary king of piano concerti', with over 70 concerti in his performance repertoire. The No. 2 concerto is the best ever, probably even so if compared with another great interpretor of this piece Dang Thai Son.
Another highly impressive reading lies in the 3 sonatas. Ohlsson has absolutely no problem with the technical aspects. That leaves one totally free to enjoy his interpretation. He is never wilful in these works. One would almost say that his playing is exactly what the composer would want of those works.

Here are some basic things you need to know about this box set. >>> The set is the reproduction of Arabseque's with bargain price(also try amazon.co.uk). The box contains with 16 Cds. Mr. Ohlsson performed on 3 different pianos.

1.Bosendorfer Imperial Grand No.33808, the piano has a very rich, dark and powerful tone, and I wonder that it might be the same piano Mr.Ohlsson used in his records of Busoni concerto, Rachmaninov concerto 2, Tchaikovsky concerto 1 and Grieg concerto. This represent another interpretation of Chopin musics because most of the records use Steinway or any other pianos that have lighter and more joyful sound, so Chopin will be darker in this record (This is just my opinion, some may thinks different, but I like dark).
2. Mason & Hamlin CC28051, which has a deep tone and more comfortable sound than Bosendorfer.
3. Steinway and Sons No. 527530, which was used in Cd 13 and 14 ( Concertos and Orchestral works). Again you will hear a lot different between Bosendorfer and Steinway.

Vol.1 Sonatas - To be honest, I never listen to the first sonata before, but Mr.Ohlsson made me like this sonata. It is such a neglected piece. 1st movement contains with sad emotion and 4th movement "Presto" starts with C octave, now you hear the power of Bosendorfer, such a violent. Sonata No.2 and No.3 are all excellent, especially No.3 the 4 movement is one of the fastest and most aggresive I have heard. ***** for Vol.1

Vol.2 Preludes - Chopin preludes are not my taste, so I didn't listen to them much. In preludes I think Ohlsson played some parts too loud and too agressive(in the left hand) and some too soft. In No.
