Rapturous keyboard romance: As a young piano virtuoso, Frédéric Chopin captured the fancy of the Parisian audience. His two concertos were written to show off his skills at the keyboard, their focus always on a soloist whose musical moods and surges of tension are excitingly accentuated by the orchestra. In an alternation of tender melancholy and wild abandonment, amid poetic moments, ravishing melodies and brilliant virtuosity, Chopin’s Piano Concertos are the epitome of Romantic piano music.
