Gold disc status in Poland on the day of release

Deutsche Grammophon announcement on the release date, Sept. 10, 2013.


BLECHACZ’S CHOPIN GOES GOLD ON DAY OF RELEASE IN POLAND
Polonaises take his native Poland by storm

Polish pianist Rafał Blechacz’s recording of Chopin Polonaises has gone Gold in Poland on the day of its release.
The recording features seven Polonaises, including the celebrated “Polonaise Fantaisie”. Blechacz has a winning way with this highly emotional, popular and poetic music and the new recording has been very keenly anticipated.
His last release, featuring Debussy and Blechacz’s compatriot Szymanowski, was named winner of the “Best Classical Album of the Year” at the Polish Fryderyk Awards and went Gold in his native country within a week of release in February 2012.
In 2008 he scooped “The Most Outstanding Polish Music Recording” at the Polish Fryderyk Awards for his recordings of the Chopin Préludes and won again in 2010 for his Chopin Piano Concertos.
