I’m a huge fan of Krystian Zimerman, and I think he’s the best pianist in the world. I spent my high school and college years listening to this recording of Chopin’s Ballade No. 1 in G minor and somehow never came across this video. If you enjoy this video, consider picking up the CD issued by Deutsche Grammophon. This breathtaking performance deserves that full 16 bit/44.1 kHz resolution. Excuse me while I go watch this ten more times before bed.
