Boris Berezovsky

Every Summer the 250-year-old castle of Schwetzingen, just outside the German city of Heidelberg, plays host to a music festival. The stars of today and, hopefully, tomorrow take part - as they have done since the festival began in 1952.
The Russian pianist Boris Berezovsky has been at the top of his profession since winning the prestigious Tchaikovsky Competition in 1990. In this recital he plays a sonata by the 20-year-old Brahms and contrasts it with a selection of pieces by Chopin that includes the turbulent 3rd Scherzo and a selection of very varied waltzes.
