Vladimir Ashkenazy: Six Chopin and Beethoven Recitals (6)

Recorded in the early 1980s

Vladimir Ashkenazy in a series of legendary recitals, filmed by Christopher Nupen's camera. He performs here the Beethoven last five sonatas as well as milestones from the Chopin repertoire. Beethoven and especially Chopin are two composers which Ashkenazy never stopped performing and recording during his long-time career, from the year 1956 when at the early age of 19 he was awarded the second prize at Chopin Competition, until now.
