Customer Reviews


Here ladies and gentlemen, is the definative recording of Chopin's Nocturnes - better than Rubenstien, Pires, Arrau....this is it. Moravec is a master of these. The occational humming we here on the disc betrays the fact that Moravec more that any other (in my opinion) has internalized these piece and made them his own. He strings each phrase along with such grace and clarity and fluidity as if to make one wonder why no one had thought to do it the way he does all along. Buy these recordings, they are masterful.

Nocturnal Perfection

Other reviewers before me have expressed what is so beautiful about these performances of Chopin's brilliant Nocturnes. I just figured it couldn't hurt to add one more voice expressing how haunting and thrilling this recording is. My grandfather (I've never met anyone besides him who had such an encyclopedic knowledge of classical recordings) gave me these on CD telling me that I would not find a better recording of the Nocturnes. Fortunately I discovered someone selling old LPs at a stoop sale in Brooklyn and snatched these up on vinyl in perfect condition for $1! It was a very happy day.

Spot on, perfect...

Absolutely gorgeous! Ivan Moravec's interpretation of "Nocturnes" brings out all the rich emotion and subtle passion which is inherent in Chopin's compositions. Deeply stirring and audibly rich, this is the perfect choice for a rainy day.

Certainly, his performances were anything but routine, his firm, pearlescent legato reminding some of the great Dinu Lipatti. His singular touch, he stated on several occasions, was a matter of necessity after an ice-skating fall at age ten that left him with a neck and spine injury. Thus, the intelligent use of his hands formed the basis for a sound decidedly unlike that...
