- Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21, CT. 48
- Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, Op. 11, CT. 47
These two concertos, cornerstones of every pianist's repertory, are especially central to Rafal Blechacz's introduction to the world stage. He performed the E Minor Concerto at the 2005 Chopin Competition and has used both works for numerable memorable debuts around the world. His affinity with Chopin runs deeper than just their shared nationality: Blechacz possesses an exceptional intelligence that gives him an in-depth understanding of the music he performs and a degree of perception that allows him to infallibly grasp the aesthetic and spiritual dimensions of the compositions he interprets. For this recording Blechacz is joined by Polish conductor Jerzy Semkow and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. From the Label
