About

This edition is of special significance for several reasons. It represents the first time that Chopinís works were recorded on an historical instrument by a single artist.

More importantly, however, it constitutes both the climax and the final accent in Tatiana Shebanovaís phonographic output; it is to this set of recordings that the career and performance style of this outstanding pianist appear to lead. When she encountered the fortepiano, all of Shebanovaís qualities her natural sensitivity to timbre, her exceptional ability to selectively and cogently shape the texture of a work, her reverence for the composerís text gained new energy.

This occurred quite late, when Shebanova already held a solid position on the worldís major concert platforms and had a very extensive repertoire at her disposal. It actually happened too late: fate decreed that this new love had only a few years to develop. Awareness of the ineluctable course of events prompted her to muster her forces and take on her dream project of recording the complete works of Chopin on his instrument.

Arranged over 14 CDs in this special box set, each disc is dedicated to a period of Chopinís compositions.

Tatiana Shebanova is joined by the Orchestra of the 18th Century conducted by Franz BrŁggen for Chopinís orchestral works.
