About

This release presents one of the best recordings of the 4 Scherzi by Chopin, as played by Ivan Moravec.

Czech pianist Ivan Moravec, whose recording career spans almost half a century, entered the classical music scene in America with aplomb thanks to his performances of Chopinís Scherzi in 1962. This recording was made in 1989 at the world famous Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in New York State, which boasts one of the finest acoustics in the US.

Playing on a Steinway Model D that had to be brought through the window especially for the performance, Moravec sparkles on this recording, as he illustrates why his reputation as a world‐class pianist is truly deserved.
