Pianist Emmanuel Despax performs Chopin’s timeless collection of 24 Preludes, op.28, alongside the Berceuse, op.57, and Barcarolle, op.60. Working from the latest editions as well as original facsimiles of Chopin’s scores, Despax brings his own passion for the works into performances that seek to remain as truthful to the composer’s intentions as possible on a modern instrument.

“Chopin the composer has always fascinated me – multifaceted, complex, a man of paradoxes. His music has huge scope yet at the same time is incredibly intimate and poetic. He sometimes has a reputation for being merely a writer of sentimental salon music; I wanted to correct this through this recording, and demonstrate how timeless and relevant, indeed modern his message is...” - Emmanuel Despax

“a formidable talent, fleet of finger, elegant of phrase and a true keyboard colourist... altogether, a noteworthy achievement.” - Gramophone Magazine, February 2014
