Canadian pianist Winston Choi is one of today’s most dynamic young concert artists. Choi, who maintains an active international performing schedule, launched his professional career when he was named Laureate of the 2003 Honens Piano Competition and winner of France’s Concours International de Piano 20e siecle d/Orleans in 2002.  In this performance for IPI, Mr. Choi performs all four impromptus of Opus 90 straight through with no editing whatsoever. What you hear is exactly what took place at the recording event with no breaks, and no electronic wizardry.  The natural recording was captured with just two superb Sanken C-100K microphones directly onto a two-track Sony APR 5003 tape recorder. Because of the simplicity of the recording chain, the sound is magical, capturing both the nuance and power of the performance. A must-have for those that love classical music and superb sonics.
