Louis Lortie Plays Chopin, Vol. 4
Catalog: CHAN 10852
Composed by: Chopin, Fryderyk
This fourth volume of Louis Lortie’s acclaimed Chopin series perfectly illustrates the elevation of the waltz to a musical art, from danses de salon to ‘works’ with proper opus numbers.The nocturnes also trace their origins to the salon, the genre deriving from a type of vocal music highly popular among amateurs as an opportunity for singing duets.Attracting critical acclaim throughout Europe, Asia, and the US, French-Canadian pianist Louis Lortie has made more than 30 recordings for Chandos label.“With this series, Mr. Lortie has made his reputation as a ‘model Chopinist” (BBC Music).
