These “Complete Recordings” – 14 CDs from the 80s and 90s by the young Ivo Pogorelich (DG) are a present. They not only awaken strong memories of a young piano genius, but may also inspire later born because of their exceptional quality. Actually, Pogorelich was not an impetuous daredevil, even though he sometimes seemed to be so in moments of concertation, but a rather thoughtful discoverer and precise, highly inspired designer. – Pogorelich does not waste any thoughts on becoming a virtuoso. It is rather as if he wanted to inspire himself by the most exact execution of the score and to carry each one who just somehow feels like it.
