The Polish Master Pianist

Witold Malcuzynski (piano)

Witold Malcuzynski, born 1914 in Warsaw, can be regarded as one the greatest heir of the Polish piano tradition inherited from Paderewski. He was also one of the greatest Chopin specialists which is reflected in his discography and therefore in this ICON set. But despite of his great predecessor, he introduced objectivity in this tradition, a kind of disdain for rubato, an art of precise phrasing which can be observed today in the art of a Krystian Zimerman. These recordings from Malcuzynski dedicated to the romantic repertoire have been unavailable for decades are absolutely to be rediscovered by piano lovers.
