Chopin – Andante Spianato – Argerich, Piano

In 1834, Frédéric Chopin wrote an Andante Spianato in G major, for piano solo, which he added to the start of the Grande Polonaise Brillante in E-flat major and joined the two parts with a fanfare-like sequence. The combined work was published in 1836, and was dedicated to Madame d’Este.

  1. My favorite pianist!! She plays with such emotion and superb technique!

  2. As an autodidact piano player I have problems with the technical difficulties:
    fast descending thirds
    rapid, difficult octave and chord jumps
    trills with thirds
    quick scales
    fast arpeggios in both hands
    broken chords
    use of a wide range on the piano keyboard

  3. FOR the most part Vladimir Horowitz is not among my preferred Chopin pianists. His performances, though always brilliant, tend to be quirky. But once in a while he nailed a piece, as with Chopin’s Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise, recorded in New York in 1945, one of the most astonishing piano recordings ever made.
