Krystian Zimerman: the 1987 Chopin Recital
Filmed in Vienna
Recorded in Vienna in 1987, this legendary video recital from Krystian Zimerman sees the Polish pianist – and winner of the Chopin Competition in Warsaw in 1975 – present a programme built around the four poetic and technically challenging ballades. Throughout those works and the rest of the programme – featuring the glittering B-flat Minor Scherzo, a nocturne, the Fantasie in F Minor and the Barcarolle – Zimerman reveals the control of sonority, colour and technique that have made him one of the most revered and admired performers of his generation.
