Chopin of the First Rank from Rubinstein 17 mai 2001
Par Hank Drake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Volume 46 of RCA's complete Arthur Rubinstein Collection features the pianist in recordings from 1961-62, performing works by Chopin which were staples of his public repertoire.
Rubinstein never recorded Chopin's First Sonata, which was written when the composer was still a teenager. That piece is largely, and justifiably, forgotten. Chopin's Second Sonata, with its famous Funeral March, figured prominently in his repertoire. He first recorded the work in 1946 (Volume 16), a harsh sounding, overdriven performance. The present version dates from 1961 and shows the pianist near his autumnal prime. Rubinstein wisely avoids the first movement repeat, and his tempos are well chosen. This is, on the whole, a rather more mellow reading of this work than one is accustomed to hearing, with a restrained Funeral March. Other fine recordings of this work include Rubinstein's "live" version from Moscow in 1964 (Volume 62, which has a slightly touched-up Scherzo); Horowitz' 1962 recording on Sony; and the mightiest Chopin Sonata of them all, Rachmaninoff's 1935 RCA recording.
Chopin's Third Sonata figured somewhat less prominently in Rubinstein's repertoire, and this is his only recording of the work. Many of the same attributes from the companion Second Sonata are here also: natural sense of phrasing and tempos, understanding of structural relationships, solid technique, and Rubinstein's inimitable gorgeous tone. The pianist avoids the trap of playing the outer movements too quickly, which would underpin their dramatic effect. Collectors of fine Chopin playing on CD would do well to obtain this version, in addition to Kapell's outstanding mono version on RCA.
The Barcarolle, Fantasie, and Berceuse are fine makeweights to a fulfilling Chopin recital.
RCA has done an excellent job of remastering Max Wilcox's fine sounding original tapes. Rubinstein's golden sonority is evident in all its splendor, with an even greater dynamic impact than in the earlier CD versions.

Newly remastered from fine performances dating from 1961-2 8 mai 2013
Par I. Giles - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This disc, recorded in 1961-2, preserves Rubinstein's unique vision of these two sonatas. The sound is still a little dry but is still good enough not to impair appreciation of the renowned Chopin pianist that Rubinstein undoubtedly was.

There are other ways to play these sonatas, perhaps with more drama, speed or countless other variations, but one can always recognise a Rubinstein recording. There is something uniquely magisterial about them. They have been likened to cut glass or crystal by some trying to describe his touch, and indeed there is a certain coolness or objectivity about his approach. Nevertheless, despite a myriad of slight fluctuations in tempo, phrasing or touch, the end result always seems to be 'just right' in an almost indefinable way.

There is an oddity about the process of recording these two sonatas that might explain why some find them a little more variable interpretive consistency than some of Rubinstein's other recordings. Sonata 3 was recorded in two separate sessions eight months apart (May 1959 and January 1961) and sonata 2 was recorded in three sessions on January 9, 10 and 11 1961. This seems remarkably protracted and, in the case of sonata 3, amazingly widely spaced for two sonatas of less than 30 minutes each and which must have been core repertoire for Rubinstein. Keeping an interpretive concept flowing convincingly over such a period would surely have been quite a challenge even for Rubinstein!

The Fantasie, Barcarolle and Berceuse are self-recommending.

Overall though, these still remain essential references for Chopin enthusiasts and there is no mistaking their unique authority. As such I would suggest that they continue to deserve serious consideration from all potential purchasers.

Further Note: The 10 disc box set published in 2010 with 24 bit remastering of the whole collection offers a significant improvement on sound in every way on all discs. This can be confidently stated as I own both and have been able to do an A/B comparison. That box set must now be the best possible purchase.

One of Rubinstein's greatest Chopin recordings 11 avril 2005
Par M. Levitt - classical music buff - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This CD, Volume 46, contains Chopin's 2nd and 3rd Piano Sonatas, plus the Fantasy, Op. 49, Barcarolle, Op. 60, and Berceuse, Op. 57.

The performances of the Sonatas are gorgeous, wonderfully poetic. The versions of the Fantasy and Barcarolle are no less fine. This is a must CD for lovers of Chopin, great piano playing and Rubinstein.

Good recorded sound.
Mind-Melting Berceuse! 31 décembre 2011
Par NPUL - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This is one of my favorite Chopin CD's - especially for the third Sonata and the Berceuse. The Berceuse is so perfect (tempo/dynamics/rubato) that it almost creates a hypnotic effect at times. When I finish listening to this I feel I don't have a care in the world. I wonder how much better the Berceuse would sound if it were originally recorded as DDD recording (if digital recording would have been available in the 60's)? I would love to be able to crank up the volume on that one and not hear a hiss of sound at all.
