This album features world premiere recordings of both Chopin Piano Concertos in fascinating orchestrations by pianist-composer Mikhail Pletnev.

Pletnev also conducts the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in performances of exceptional detail, lyrical freedom and chamber music-like transparency.

The solo works include some of Chopin's earliest (Variations on "La ci darem la mano", op. 2) and latest (Fantaisie-Impromptu, op.66) works, together with the rarely-heard Rondo, op.73a for two pianos, a devilishly difficult piece here performed by Daniil Trifonov together with his friend and mentor, Sergei Babayan.

The atmospheric tenth variation of Mompou's Variations on a Theme of Chopin is entitled "Evocation" and, in its poigant transformation of Chopin's famous melodies, inspired the name of this album.
