This box set features the works of Frederic Chopin, performed by the pianist Samson Francois. Francois spent a lot of his early career, from the end of the 1940s, recording works by Chopin. His true stardom lies in his performances of the ballades and nocturnes with his use of pedal and his contrast between the visual and the narrative aspects.
