    Really interesting article indeed for discovery of Chopin. I noticed when I was travelling on business, a new concept of comparing different interpretations of Chopin compositions by some great piansists. It looks like it is part of a series of albums. I discovered it on amazon, “Chopin Bicentennial Comparative Series – Volume 1″. I wonder what other people think of this approach.
