D.A.W., a master pianist, offers compelling readings that every devoted Chopin-lover should find both challenging and rewarding. He is fleet and extroverted.
The early works are dispatched with requisite sensitivity, the later ones on a truly grand scale, in turn restless and turbulent, quiet and reflective. (American Record Guide)
 
If you love Chopin, you should hear american D. A. W. play his 21 Nocturnes.
He avoids sentimentalizing these intensely romantic pieces, yet he brings rare purpose and feeling to them. (Ottawa Citizen)

Like Russia, the United States continues to produce a stream of fine pianists, and D. A. W. is certainly among the most outstanding.
It is often hard to believe that this is the same high-powered pianist encountered on the Wagner-Liszt CD.
The impression given is of a pianist searching into the composer's introspections, and his ability is particularly noted in the darker works where he creates real expressive tension.
In more serene moments, he delivers a finely shaped lyricism devoid of sentimentality.
Contemplation and meditation accompany the questing, but in an attempt to reveal the truths within the music.
The first time I heard this issue I listened to all 21 Nocturnes without a break, and found the experience rapturous, rewarding and impressive. (Pianoforte)

At only seventeen, she won the Geneva international piano competition.
Her first recording, an LP of 12 Scarlatti sonatas, which she recorded in a mere 4 hours in 1955,
was hailed by Newsweek magazine as the most spectacular record of the year.
Her recordings of Bach's Goldberg Variations and of sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti have been awarded the "Diapason d’Or".
Her stature has tended to be higher among her fellow-pianists than with the general public.
Martha Argerich, in an interview with Rai Radio 3, referred to her as "sensational".

Critical acclaim:
"My favourite disciple Idil Biret... This genius pianist belongs to the class of elect musicians of our time."
Wilhelm Kempff
"The complete Chopin set by Idil Biret can stand among the highest echelons of contemporary Chopin playing."
Igor Kipnis
"The distinguished pianist Idil Biret shows herself to be one of the finest exponents of Chopin's concertos in the world today.
I cannot think of any competitor who can offer better performances than these."
Tully Potter
"This great pianist, who in 1986 victoriously launched an assault on Liszt's transcription of Beethoven’s nine symphonies,
does it again today by playing Chopin in its entirety in a breathtaking interpretation."
Henry-Louis de La Grange

Recording session: 2010
Publisher: Decca (2010)
 
NF is an acknowledged master of the keyboard. His recordings for Decca have won numerous awards,
including a Gramophone Award, Diapason d’or, Grand Prix de l’Académie Charles Cros, and Choc du Monde de la musique.
NF is a past winner of the Dinu Lipatti Medal, first prize winner of the International Vianna da Motta Competitionand was France’s Victoires de la Musique’s "Soloist of the Year" in 2002.
 
"Suppleness before everything” Chopin used to tell his students. NF does his best to follow suit,often varying quickenings and hesitations with a magician’s touch...
A level of poetic enchantment...takes this music of sweet dreams and agitated melancholy through the night to victory" (The Times)
 
“For NF the Nocturnes are tirelessly experimental, an opalescent world of shifting moods and colours...True, there are moments when a once legendary
and impeccable technique stiffens [...], yet this is less than marginal in music-making so personal and reflective” (Gramophone Magazine)

Critical acclaim for the nocturnes (recorded in just two days, 30 September and 1 October 1989) was marked.
The recording received the 1997 Critics Choice Award from National Public Radio, and the critic Jessica Duchen writing in BBC Music Magazine (May 1997) said:
"These performances of the Chopin Nocturnes, recorded in 1989, are really rather extraordinary… a glorious singing tone of great clarity,
eloquence and purity, with beautifully balanced accompaniment and inner voices… they moved me to tears."
Of his own playing, he said:
"In my conviction, Chopin isn't a sentimentalist. On the contrary when I am at the piano I feel his power and anguished revolutionary might."

“The sum effect of these performances is exciting, deeply personal and often moving.
I doubt that anyone who knows and loves Chopin’s music will find François’s approach less than absorbing.”
