Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik


Blechacz's CD "Polonaises" selected as quarterly best recording by German critics.

preis.jpgRafaƂ Blechacz cannot stay in one place for too long as he is constantly on the go, goes ahead. In spite of this, he is perfectly aware of when tostop. Such an audio impression is provided by his new interpretation of Frédéric Chopin‘s Polonaises; let the octaves of the bass in the middle part of Op. 53 or unexpected contrasts and interpretational details of Op. 40. Blechacz does not let these Polonaises be in a confinement, but reveals their amazing emotional extension from great culminating point to naturally beautiful elegance. A record full of inside fire, numerous colour shades and tones, flexibility and taste.
