Composers have had a long time to try, but no one has yet trumped Frederic Chopin when it comes to instilling profound emotion into pieces for the piano. Vladimir Ashkenazy, Claudio Arrau, Jorge Bolet and Zolton Kocsis are among the celebrated performers here, playing his first and second piano concertos plus Nocturnes Nos. 1-20; Nocturne in C Minor (1837); Ballades Nos. 1-4; 24 Preludes, Op. 28; Preludes Nos. 25 & 26; Impromptus Nos. 1-4 , and Waltzes Nos. 1-19 .
