About

"I always loved Chopin, albeit somewhat from a distance Ė like Bach, whose works I didnít play in public for a long time. However, it is amusing to note that a certain piece by Chopin is the work Iíve probably performed more often than anything else: the Nocturne in C Sharp minor, op.posth; I like to feature it as an encore. If someone asked me to sum up my entire life as an artist with a signature piece, I would probably choose it. I feel a profound connection with its melodic simplicity, its light melancholy mood. Iíve discovered once more that Chopin is truly one of the greatest. He single-handedly revolutionized piano technique; he was able to express so much on the keyboard! Chopinís melodies have a fragility, a beauty, a personality that remind me of Mozart more than any other composer. It has been said that Mozartís music cries and laughs at the same time. In Chopin there is something similar." - Lars Vogt on why he chose to record this repertoire
