Pollini's traversal of Chopin's 19 Nocturnes (he leaves out the pair of posthumous ones) is one of his finest recordings in years. His long-lined yet detailed performances are comparable to the very different ones that have long stood at the pinnacle of recorded sets. Not as serene as Artur Rubinstein's, not as philosophical as Claudio Arrau's, nor as warm as Ivan Moravec's, Pollini's interpretations have their own allure. One is the way he shapes the melodies with a natural flow enhanced by his tonal beauty, less lean and streamlined than his usual way with Romantic music.

There's nothing at all wrong with Maurizio Pollini's 2009 performance of Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier, Book 1. The Italian pianist's intellectual lucidity, interpretive clarity, and technical virtuosity are apparent in every prelude and fugue, and his probing insights and penetrating analysis inform every note. However, there is almost nothing right with the sound quality of the recording. The piano sounds too distant, making it hard to hear precisely what Pollini is doing, but oddly, the ambient sound is too present, making every extraneous noise too loud. One should not hear the pedals being pressed and lifted, much less the clatter of the hammers and the twanging of the strings above the sound of the music. Worse yet, one can hear what sounds like every breath Pollini takes nearly as loudly as every note he plays. These are all grievous flaws that should have been eliminated, and their presence fatally undermines the brilliance of Pollini's performances. A reengineered version of these performances would be most welcome, but the present recording is so flawed that it virtually destroys Pollini's playing.

On his first concerto disc for Deutsche Grammophon and his first devoted to works by Mozart, Maurizio Pollini performs two perennial favourites: the sunny A major work and the lively F major K.459 with its overwhelming fugato finale. The veteran conductor Karl Böhm and sumptuous accompaniments by the Vienna Philharmonic provide the perfect background to Pollini’s immaculate playing.

Here is Pollini in all his early glory, in performances expertly transferred from 1976. Shorn of all virtuoso compromise or indulgence, the majestic force of his command is indissolubly integrated with the seriousness of his heroic impulse. Never have I been compelled into such awareness of the underlying malaise beneath the outward and nationalist defiance of the Polonaises. The tension and menace at the start of No. 2 are almost palpable, its storming and disconsolate continuation made a true mirror of Poland’s clouded history.

Jazz harmonica legend Toots Thielemans called his friend harmonicist/composer Maurício Einhorn "a vital force in Brazilian music both as a player and a composer". Einhorn’s influence flows over into jazz. He has worked with such major figures as Jim Hall, David Sanborn, Paquito D’Rivera, Baden Powell, as well as singers Bobby McFerrin, and Sarah Vaughan; the likes of Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Mann and Bossa Nova legend Jobim have recorded his compositions.

"Maurizio Pollini and the Quartetto Italiano in Brahms sounds like a dream ticket … and so it proves to be … the legendary luminosity of sound is still there, as is the beautiful precision, perfectly complemented by Pollini's clarity and control of touch." - Gramophone
