Chopin: 24 Preludes Op. 28, 12 Etudes Op. 10, 12 Etudes Op. 25

It was Anda who, two years later, offered an evening devoted solely to works by Frédéric Chopin – another birthday boy in 2010. The 24 Preludes op. 28 were on the programme, as were the 12 Etudes op. 10 – hitherto unavailable in Anda’s interpretation – and the “second dozen” of Etudes op. 25. This was a true tour de force, though that is not how Anda approached them, possessed as he was of a superb technique and high culture of touch. Rather are they a wholly uplifting, truly magical musical experience.
