Where technology meets art
Winston Choi, Schubert Impromptus 1 – 4, Opus 90, 18 July 2017, Chicago, Illinois
Canadian pianist Winston Choi’s is one of today’s most dynamic young concert artists. See further down in this tape listing for more information on Mr. Choi from his first outing for International Phonograph, Inc., his performance of Schubert’s Opus 142, Impromptus. For this, his second performance for IPI, Mr. Choi performs all four impromptus of Opus 90 straight through with no editing whatsoever. What you hear is exactly what took place at the recording event with no breaks, and no electronic wizardry. The natural recording was captured with just two (superb) microphones and one two-track tape recorder. Because of the simplicity of the recording chain, the sound is magical, capturing both the nuance and power of the performance. A must-have for those that love classical music and superb sonics.
