Description
Previously released on the Chesky label, this 1990 recital featuring Chopin's Four Scherzos and Four Ballades was recorded at Fernleaf Abbey in Columbus, Ohio.

"The possessor of one of the most sleek and feline, suave and scintillating techniques of all time (it aroused the awe of Horowitz), Wild continues to play with an energy and commitment that are truly astonishing."—Gramophone

"The scherzos are bold and dramatic. In the B minor scherzo, there is a well-defined contrast between the violent outer sections and calm central section, while the E major scherzo is delightfully playful with its skyrocketing arpeggios."—International Piano

"Wild has a strength and purposefulness in his playing that make these pieces grand and majestic and at times, thrilling. Even in the softer, quiet moments, such as the openings of Ballade No. 2 and Ballade No. 3, the directness and clarity of each note is the defining feature…. No matter how passionate the music is, there is always that sense of texture in it. The clarity and almost complete detachment of each note from the next is like running your hand over a patch of fresh grass: it is smooth, yet not smooth…. It is a testament to his technique that he can play so precisely and yet still be compelling."—All Music Guide
