Clic Musique Reviews Frederic Chiu Beethoven Symphonies V & VII

Frederic Chiu, a pianist whose appearances in France are all too rare, launched his fantastic recording career with the complete works of Prokofiev. He offers us here his personal approach to two symphonies, recorded in 2018 (#7) and 2008 (#5)...The coherence of the approach is admirably justified. Frederic Chiu never attempts to "beautify" or romanticize the two scores... He draws out all of the revolutionary essence from the works, transporting us... to reveal an undiscovered sound world. (Jean Dandr├ęsy)
