CHOPIN Frédéric - Alexander Paley (2CD)
Alexander Paley, who was born in Moldavia in 1956, brings to Chopin a calm and even-tempered approach. Although these are certainly virtuoso showpieces, Paley does not use this opportunity to show off. These are inner-directed and contemplative performances. The demands of the music are securely met and dealt with. The full range of the musical poetry of the Blüthner Grand is ideally suited to capture every nuance Paley brings to his performance of these popular works by Chopin.
Haenssler Classic, in cooperation with Blüthner Pianos, is proud to present one of today’s most exciting young pianists, in a performance of one of his artistic triumphs and featuring the well-articulated and colorful registration of the Blüthner Concert grand.
