HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Hungaroton/Philips) Frederyk Chopin – The Waltzes (Kocsis)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to Trottar for the record
Kocsis’ rendition of the Waltzes captures the essence of these vivid compositions beyond another any pianist, including renditions of Rubinstein or Argerich that I have heard. They are soulful, mesmerizing and played with a gushing tempo that is more appropriate than any of the other recordings I have heard. If you had to preview one piece, simply listen to Waltz #7. Kocsis performs better than I have ever heard him: by turns playful, soulful, pyrotechnic, eloquently simple, and always impeccably lucid and effective. Each segment seems like a delightful musical gift.
It would be difficult to ask for more!
