Great care was taken by Unitel Classica to provide Ivo Pogorelich with everything he needed during this superbly recorded account of works by Chopin, Beethoven and Scriabin, recorded at the beautiful Villa Contarini, Piazzola and Brenta, in Italy between August 2-14 1987, in state of the art sound.Everything except an audience.I bought this DVD shortly after watching his stunning live performance of the Chopin Polonaise in F sharp minor, on youtube, which is only a hairs breadth away from equalling Horowitz incredible account during Horowitz 1968 TV Concert.This performance on the DVD of that same Polonaise, sounds almost like a different pianist.Still good, but on the mundane side, and definitely not the electrifying virtuoso performance seen live on youtube.The Beethoven Sonata No.32 is also mundane and much too slow for my taste. The Scriabin Etude opus 8 no.2 is played with great expression, beautiful touch and feeling, but the main theme is supposed to be played staccato, and so far Horowitz appears to be the only one that had the technique to play it that way.The Chopin Sonata No.2 is excellent, and will not dissappoint, but the main lesson here is how even when a perfect environment is provided, without an audience, even the greatest pianists are not truly inspired.Rachmaninoff once said without live concerts he would quite playing.Pogorelich is a great pianist, but must be inspired by an audience so that his true creative genius will flourish.
