As a teenager, Chopin was a performer-composer and wrote this to showcase his skills. In his own words, the goal was ‘reviving in one’s soul beautiful memories’. Key features of the work are its dramatic lyricism and a vivacious Rondo.

Reviews
These are just beautifully recorded, with Eldar Nebolsin's beautiful touch and phrasing evident against the solid backdrop of the Warsaw Philharmonic, conducted by Antoni Wit. You can really hear the piano speak on this 24/96 recording (originally released by Naxos on Blu-ray disc) reveals every nuance of Nebolsin's playing through the wide range of moods the piano concertos explore; stereo imaging is quite wide and open as well. Concerto No. 2 is particulary impressive, Nebolsin on great form whether exploring the lyrical (check out the Maestoso") or the ridiculously technical (the "Alla Polacca" section)." - Michael Berk, Sound + Vision
