Lang Lang: The Chopin Album
Lang Lang: The Chopin
World-renowned pianist LANG LANG turns to the composer who has accompanied him throughout his career on his new release for Sony Classical, THE CHOPIN ALBUM.

"I genuinely believe he's a true ambassador for classical music among the great composers.

Alexander Brailowsky plays Chopin - The Complete RCA
Sony Classical is pleased to announce the first release of Alexander Brailowskys complete RCA Victor recordings, many of them never before available in the digital medium.

During World War I Brailowsky also studied with Busoni in Switzerland and in 1919 he made his debut in Paris. Five years later came his first appearance in New York where he settled, then making regular coast-to-coast tours of North America while continuing to visit Europe. There was one composer with whom Alexander Brailowsky was associated throughout his career and has remained associated through recordings since his death in 1976: Frederic Chopin. Brailowsky was the first pianist to present Chopins entire 169 solo works as a cycle, performing this feat before capacity audiences in New York, Brussels, Zurich, Mexico City, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Paris. At the end of his 1938 Chopin series in New York, one reviewer noted that there are few enough pianists who have the prodigious memory, the physical strength, the compr...
