When approaching music as popular and as deservedly loved as Chopin’s waltzes, a musician must have something special to say for a new recording to make its mark. According to Fou T’Song – no mean Chopin pianist himself – Alessandro Deljavan is ‘one of the most interesting pianists I have heard in my life’. Excerpts on YouTube from his success at the 2013 Van Cliburn Competition in Fort Worth confirm the truth and promise of Fou T’Song’s acclamation.

Among recent and forthcoming recordings in his extensive discography are discs of diverse repertoire drawn from solo and chamber music including the piano quintet of Taneyev; Grieg’s violin Sonatas, Bach’s keyboard toccatas, cello sonatas by Martucci, and a Schumann recital. But the apparently simplicity of Chopin’s waltzes is no less a test of musical and technical mastery than many of these more recondite delights. The 17 waltzes are not gathered into one or two collections like the Etudes, but were composed throughout Chopin’s all-too-brief career. For many the best-known and yet also most sublime a distillation of the waltz-form is Op.64 No.1, known as the ‘Minute’ on account of its brevity. Op.69 No.1 breathes no less spirited an evocation of remembered youth, and yet with the shadow behind its harmonies of regret and melancholy which unforgettably tinge the Nocturnes. There is a waltz for every mood, and Deljavan’s interpretations will receive wide critical attention.
Chopin’s waltzes are written for the Parisian salon, for a sophisticated audience of artists and aristocracy. Though more “light hearted” than most of his other compositions they bear the unmistakable genius of Chopin: refined and exquisite pianism, brilliance and melancholy, sorrow and joy go hand in hand.
Italian Alessandro Deljavan is one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation. “His playing is full of intensive power and contagious artistry” (Dmitri Bashkirov), “he is one of the most interesting pianists I’ve heard in my life” (Fou Ts’Ong), “he is one of the most major talents of his age” (John Perry), “Jaw-dropping virtuosity and heart-stopping eloquence” (Dallas Morning News).

    I see people disagree that Chopin did not have great compositional skills. Compared to like Bach and or Beethoven. But, there are things that you have forgotten:
    1)Certain pieces were never meant to be heard by us (posthumous works. only Opus numbers were made to be published by Chopin. posthumous numbered works including the omnipresent Fantasie Impromptu and the late waltzes) The Fantasise impromptu was not copied from Beethoven. Arthur Rubinstein acquired a manuscript of the Fantaisie-Impromptu in Chopin's own hand, dated 1835, stating on the title page in French "Composed for the Baroness d'Este by Frédéric Chopin". The facts of its authenticity having been "guaranteed by the French authorities" and that it shows "a delicate care for detail" and "many improvements in harmony and style" in comparison to the previously published version. It was just Oster's opinion that it was similar.
    2)By having a simple melody in a nocturne, for example, does not mean it is lesser than writing in counterpoint. They are two types of music from two different periods.
    3)If you do want complex writing and harmony and think Chopin lacked it. A prime example is Ballade no.4
    4)Is it not unfair to compare a 5-minute work against a symphony or concerto lasting around an hour at least?
    5)If one were to use the ''shitty'' symphony composer good for nothing except piano argument. We could turn it around: No one previously in PIANO history had the technique of Chopin except Liszt and Alkan. Neither could they compose for piano as well as him. Other composers thought of it as a miniature orchestra, Chopin thought of it as a unique instrument. He revolutionised and challenged the whole German piano technique system, out of that came, for example, the Russian technique which is much different.
    6)Schumann basically became a Chopin fanboy.
    7)Twenty-seven years after Chopin’s death to Carolyne Sayn-Wittgenstein Liszt commented, “no one compares to him: he shines lonely, peerless in the firmament of art.”
    8)Hiller, a pupil of Hummel’s, a great admirer of the music of Bach: ‘I could say that Chopin loved me, but in truth, it was I who was in love with him’.
    9)Mendelssohn to his sister Fanny Hensel: […] At a lightning tempo he played to the bemused Leipzigers his new études and his new concerto [Allegro de concert Op. 46?] '‘It was a pleasure for me to rub shoulders once again with a real musician, not with such half-virtuosos, half-classicists who would bring together in music the dignity of virtue and the rapture of sin’.
    10)One of the fathers of Romanticism
    11)Why do counterpoint and complex harmony immediately mean great? The difficulty of interpretation of a Chopin piece rivals any other composer.

    Fight me! Just kidding, don't roast me too hard. There is no right or wrong in music. To me, Chopin's magic lies in the hands of both the composer as much as the performer. Compared to other greats, maybe he was not your type. He is a hero to me

    Why is there a picture of Paris as the background, surely if everything in this video was written by Chopin you would use a place in Poland like Warsaw?
