About

The International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, one of the world’s greatest piano competitions, has produced many illustrious winners and exceptional artists. Here, in an 11-CD box, is a broad survey of the winners from 1927, when the competition began, to 2010.

The Edition includes many classic recordings and a series of live recordings, several from the original Competitions themselves, featuring the great Garrick Ohlsson and the most recent winner Yulianna Avdeeva – both appearing for the first time in any format.

Also featured are two CDs from the early winners of the Competition (1927–55), that fully capture the Chopin piano tradition of earlier times – highlights include Halina Czerny-Stefanska’s Piano Concerto no.1 and selections from Lev Oborin (1927), Alexandre Uninsky (1932) and Yakov Zak (1937).
