More than two hours of beautiful music for solo piano by one of the instrument's best-loved composers, played by Freddy Kempf, Alfredo Perl and Angela Hewitt. Atmospherically filmed, in evocative settings in France (Château de Neuville, Gambais) and the UK (Hopetoun House, Edinburgh), and reproduced in top quality sound and vision, these new 2003 recordings include the complete Opus 28 Préludes, the Op 10 and Op 25 Etudes and the Sonata in B flat Minor, Op 35.
"...the performances are of quality and are free from any intrusive idiosyncrasies. Moreover, the camerawork in each location is of the old school, never fussy or wanting to draw attention to itself, but managed with discretion and taste. This DVD is very modestly priced, given the amount of music offered, and will give much pleasure." (The Penguin Guide)
