The interest of this release will, for completists, be that it is the first of three projected discs of Preludes. Who will the composers be, it is intriguing to guess?

For admirers of Dutilleux his three are well worth hearing, as is one Chopin prelude I didn't know - Op post. in Ab, presto con leggierezza.

The main oeuvre, Chopin's 24, is well played, but not competitive with some you probably have already.

Perhaps Alexandra Dariescu might have done better to start with the other composers?

A fuller review will therefore follow the more interesting next instalment.
