Wilde plays Chopin at the Wigmore Hall

Pianist David Wilde brings astounding vibrancy and exuberance to the Polish master in his account of late Chopin. Wilde, for whom ‘every performance is a confrontation with himself’, counts among his mentors Solomon, Reizenstein, Elinson and Boulanger. In this bold live recital, he presents repertoire that conflicts with the feminine, gentle aspect of popular Chopin myth. He argues instead that Chopin’s wide-ranging music ‘includes an element of physical passion and a feeling for the heroic and for dramatic tension no less arresting than that of Liszt’.


 

"Wholeheartedly committed, authoritative and at times dazzlingly virtuosic"
