CD Reviews

The ultimate Romantic "Nocturnes" set
J. Thomas | Sebastopol, CA USA | 10/09/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I can't let a negative review of this wonderful set by one of the most underrated pianists of the last century go by unchallenged. Yes, she performs these at an even slower pace than does Arrau on his Philips set, but all the better to showcase her exquisite tone, touch, and flawless use of the sustain pedal. Tipo's style is surely wrong for some music, but for the Chopin Nocturnes...? I can think of no other compositions that so thoroughly deserve the label "Romantic." These are Romantic performances like no other, the direct opposite of Rubinstein's tossed-off stereo version. I like the Arrau and Moravec sets too, but Tipo's is my favorite."
Great recording

"The thing I liked the most about this recording is that it allowed me to hear the Nocturnes in a completely different way from what I am used to hearing. Some gorgeous voicings, and some incredibly delicate moments. As a piano teacher, I like my students to hear several interpretations of each piece---and I love having this as a companion and a foil to Rubinstein's benchmark recording. I wouldn't play everything as Tipo plays, but I applaud her for her insights!"
