About

David Wilde made his first Delphian appearance in a recital of Chopin’s music recorded live at the Wigmore Hall. Seven recordings and 12 years later, immediately following the death of his wife Jane, David stopped work on a disc of recently written British piano sonatas and turned his attentions to this second Chopin programme in memory of Jane.

In his 80th year, David’s breath-taking virtuosity and towering intellect combine in interpretations informed by a long lifetime of study and performance. And in this music, which has been central to his musical life, David’s performances revel in Chopin’s extremes. This is, after all, the composer who is reported to have said to a pupil: "If I had your strength and could play that Polonaise as it should be played, there would be no string left unbroken by the time I had finished!".

Wilde’s Chopin is not for the timid: these are performances fuelled by passion, performances that combine heartfelt tenderness with deep personal grief.

Pianist and composer David Wilde was born in Manchester in 1935. A student of the legendary pianist Solomon, Franz Reizenstein and Nadia Boulanger, Wilde won a first prize at the Liszt–Bartók competition in Budapest in 1961. He now records exclusively for Delphian Records.
