CHOPIN BARCAROLLE II



You will find more performances on this page entitled Chopin Barcarolle II.  Some of the best are to be found here as I have presented the pianists in their chronological order, so be sure to look for more of your favorites below.

I have just come upon the recordings by Ivan Moravec, Yves Nat, and George Walker, and add them to my favorites.

Another of my favorite performances on this page is by Isaac Mikhnovsky, a contmporary of Gilels and Richter, whose playing is exquisite.

If you want to compare a performance on this page with one on one of the other pages, use these links: Chopin Barcarolle and Chopin Barcarolle III.
