180g Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original EMI Stereo Analogue Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios!

Maurizio Pollini (b.1942) burst onto the world's music scene by winning the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 1960. Arthur Rubinstein, who led the jury, declared Pollini the winner of the competition, allegedly saying: "that boy can play the piano better than any of us". Soon afterwards, he made this recording for EMI, his first commercial recording.

In the original review in The Gramophone of November 1960, R.F. remarked: "Orchestral accompaniment and balance are worthy of the solo playing. I have never heard the opening given with such fire. The orchestra stays on its toes throughout, and Kletzki makes a splendid job of following every variation of tempo. I do not ever expect to hear the concerto played better..."

Recorded 20-21 April 1960, Abbey Road Studio No.1, London. Recording Producer: Victor Olof. Balance Engineer: Douglas Larter
