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. – Martha Argerich

  1. 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.
