Berezovsky is a sadly under-rated player, even though he won the Tchakovsky Competition in 1990. His natural talent is given full vent in these Etudes. One must remember that these were studies written by Chopin, each one exploring a singular technical idea - the 'Revolutionary' a test of left-hand power and flexibility, Op.10 No.1 a study in right-hand stretches, etc. Thus in each piece, Berezovsky utilises a different aspect of his phenomenal technique and gives a demonstration of how they should be played. In the CD booklet, one critic accurately observes that Berezovsky 'knows there is plenty of time ahead of him'; and rightly so! In a musical world today where everyone thinks they need to flex their muscle in order to gain attention, Berezovsky carries on at his own pace, regardless. There is no need to play everything at breakneck speed as does Argerich where the tendency is to sink into a show of bad taste and pointless pyrotechnics.

L. Timofeyeva is a laureate of International competitions in Montreal and M. Long in Paris. Only a very mature musician can play F. Chopin’s Etudes, especially in a circle. Here L. Timofeyeva has brought out Chopin’s harmonious outlook and the wealth of light colors. Even rueful, tragic works have found their place in the gamut of feelings. Gentle lyricism – this is the main feature of L. Timofeyeva readings. Soft, winsome sound, heartfelt emotion, love of romantic, expressive melody – these features of the pianist’s gift have determined the interpretations of these works.

From the notes: Claudio Arrau [1903-1991] has perhaps the widest performing repertoire of any pianist in history, but four composers were central to it: Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin and Schumann. These composers he played in concerts and recordings all his life, reaching ever greater depths in interpretation as the years went by."… "Arrau's interpretations of Schumann and Chopin stress the darker, more complex and dramatic sides of the composers' personalities."

The steady increase in recordings of his music has now established Suk as one of the great musical poets of the early 20th century. Too much is made of his affinities with his teacher and father-in-law, Dvorák; for his own part, Dvorák never imposed his personality on his pupils and Suk's mature music owes him little more than a respect for craft and an extraordinarily well developed ear for orchestral colour. His affinities in the five-movement A Summer's Tale, completed in 1909 – a magnificent successor to his profound Asrael Symphony – reflect Debussy and parallel the music of his friend Sibelius and Holst, but underpinning the musical language is a profound originality energising both form and timbre.
Mackerras's recording joins a select band: Šejna's vintage performance on Supraphon and Pešek's inspired rendition with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic; his is an equal to them both and the Czech Philharmonic's playing is both aspiring and inspiring.
