After my first experience with Lang Lang's recordings - his thrilling Liszt album released in 2011 - this time I was tempted to listen to him performing on disc some of the truly jewels in the Chopin treasure (Etudes o. 5, some Nocturnes and Waltzes, plus the solo version of the Andante spianato & Grande Polonaise). Yet a more refined - in musical terms - approach would have been helped more in imposing this achievement in the memory of the listener. It could (maybe even should) miss the selection of pieces included on this album. Released quite simultaneously with Maurizio Pollini's new Chopin recording, this album by Lang Lang falls a little bit secondary.
