This selection received a Grammy nomination for "Best Classical Album" and "Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (without Orchestra)." The comparative simplicity of Chopin's Op. 28 Preludes (when placed against his Etudes, for example) and their status as "miniatures" often hide the fact that they are, in fact, extremely demanding pieces, especially in interpretation. These works, probably written in homage to Johann Sebastian Bach's 'Well-Tempered Clavier,' have been the eminent domain of such great pianists as Artur Rubinstein, Vladimir Horowitz and Claudio Arrau. The Preludes now belong to young Evgeny Kissin.

Jan Lisiecki puts the spotlight on rarely recorded works of the orchestral Chopin, the repertoire that became his calling card and kick-started his international career. Jan’s release of both piano concertos (recorded at the age of 13 and 14) with Sinfonia Varsovia and Howard Shelley was praised as one of the most exciting contributions to Chopin’s 200th anniversary year in 2010. The two live recordings that have earned Jan the prestigious Diapason Découverte award in May 2010, placed him on the map as a promising newcomer and resulted in his exclusive DG recording deal. Now, Jan has fulfilled his dreams of completing the orchestral Chopin repertoire: To record all remaining works for piano and orchestra recorded in the studio with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, conducted by the Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański.

Dual natures comprised Chopin's personality. On one hand, he was a highly creative romantic idealist and on the other, a realist trying to cope with the world at large. Documentary evidence illustrates the disparities in his personality as a reflection of these two diverse aspects of his psyche. Of special interest are five previously unpublished letters in English and the unfolding of Chopin's controversial relationships with Tytus Woyciechowski, Julian Fontana, George Sand, and Solange Sand.

Chopin ne vivait qu'à travers sa musique, ne pouvant traduire ses sentiments qu'en les traduisant en notes de musique. C'est à un âge très précoce qu'il est initié au piano. Plus tard, exilé politique en France à partir de 1831 -où il passera presque la moitié de sa vie-, le compositeur polonais a été influencé par la musique de salon française. A Paris, il évolue parmi Liszt, Rossini, Bellini.

Genre : Documentaire

L'art de Chopin est un portrait à la fois distrayant, instructif et plein d'émotion. Gérald Caillat a marié deux approches. La première privilégie le récit biographique : elle permet de saisir le génie du compositeur dans son époque en évoquant sa vie, son travail, ses préoccupations existentielles, ses influences musicales. La seconde se veut plus analytique, avec les témoignages de quelques-uns des plus grands interprètes de ses oeuvres, parmi lesquels Garrick Ohlsson, Evgeny Kissin, Bella Davidovich, Piotr Anderszewski et Yuja Wang. Chacun à leur manière, ils nous font partager leur passion pour Chopin et leur compréhension de sa musique, facile en apparence, mais si difficile à jouer. Des archives filmées de pianistes prestigieux, dont certains sont disparus, complètent le portrait.
