In this fourth volume of Chopin's complete works, Roberto Poli's original and thoughtful playing traverses dances, nocturnes, and the monumental Funeral Sonata. The piano, utilized here as a coloristic instrument, reveals new unexplored aspects of the composer's music. The extraordinary Steinway D used for these live recordings is captured in the exquisitely rich and nuanced acoustics offered by the intimate setting in which these performances took place.

Incontestably, Roberto Poli belongs to the recent breed of precious musicians-pianists, less rare than it is thought among today's young generation, who take the time to let the music breathe to reveal it to us more fully! —Pierre-Yves Lascar (29/09/2011) 
Finally what promises to be a complete Chopin cycle from Roberto Poli. All the performances on his issue are the fruit of deep affection and consideration, where in fragments he recreates something special. [...] in Poli own words, 'A labour of love'. —Bryce Morrison (07/10/2011) 
[Roberto Poli] rendition is flowing and shimmering, like a seaside painted by Seurat. Granted many fine Chopin collections are available, but I think Poli's disc repays careful study. —Dave Saemann (09/02/2012)
