"The Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor of Polish composer FrÈdÈric Chopin was actually composed before his Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor. The F minor was begun in autumn 1829 and premiered on March, 3, 1830, while the E minor was begun shortly after the premiere of the F minor. The F minor is a less popular and more derivative work than the E minor; there is the sense that Chopin, having heard the F minor, decided to move beyond his models." - AMG.

This recording clearly demonstrates Rubinstein's affinity for Chopin. A great performance of Chopin as only Rubinstein can. The Piano is captured realistically and naturaly.
Surface noise is very faint and barely audible only on the quietest passages.
