HD-Vinyl 24/192 (RCA Living Stereo) Frederyk Chopin – The Chopin Ballades (Rubinstein)

front-small-boxset
Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this gem
Rubinstein was in his prime when these versions of the Chopin Ballades were recorded in 1959. Curiously, he had never before recorded them.
Rubinstein was temperamentally well suited to these works, moreso than in the Mazurkas and Preludes. The narrative aspect of the Ballades suited his intuitive sense of structure well. At this point in his career, Rubinstein had known these pieces for six decades. It is no wonder, therefore, that he performs them more convincingly than, say, Kissin does on his recent recording.
