Selected by Robin Gehl, Vice-President of Programming at WGUC.

She writes; "Rafał Blechacz, winner of the 2005 International Chopin Competition, performed Chopin's first concerto at the competition, and was the first Pole to win the prize since 1975. Blechacz's third recording, featuring Chopin's Concertos No. 1 and 2, reached double-platinum status in Poland and was awarded a prestigious German Record Critic's Award. Blechacz offers a mature, soulful interpretation of the first concerto that's worthy of all the accolades"
