news & reviews

  • about this album

    This recording of Chopin's nocturnes by Czech pianist Ivan Moravec, originally released in 1966 and reissued on CD by Nonesuch in 1991, is "astonishing," raves the New York Times. Moravec's "extraordinary dynamic shading and gracious shaping of each gemlike work lift his account above a crowded field: truly, this is an essential document."
