Pollini, Maurizio & The Editors of The Chicago Symphony Orchestra. MAURIZIO POLLINI: CHICAGO SYMPHONY CENTER 2001/2002 SOLO RECITAL. Chicago, IL: Performance Media, 2015. Softcover. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. As New. Signed.

Rare Maurizio Pollini collectible item. A pristine copy of the Compact Disc (CD) of "Beethoven Sonatas Opp. 31 & 49", signed by Maurizio Pollini. It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of Maurizio Pollini's Chicago Symphony Center 2015/2016 Season solo recital. The CD represents the culmination of Pollini's decades-long Beethoven Complete Sonatas traversal. The final volume in the Series, it presents Pollini's magisterial (and as always with the great pianist, highly idiosyncratic and original) interpretations of Beethoven Sonatas Numbers 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. A scarce signature by the greatest living Italian pianist, obtained on the occasion of his landmark recital-performance (of Robert Schumann's and Frederic Chopin's greatest works) , which inaugurated CSO's Piano Recital Series for the 2015/2016 season. An absolute "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, item for Maurizio Pollini collectors. This copy of the Compact Disc (CD) of "Beethoven Sonatas Opp.31 & 49" is very prominently and beautifully signed in metallic silver pen-marker in front by Maurizio Pollini. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. It comes with a pristine copy of the Souvenir Program of the pianist's Chicago Symphony Center 2015/2016 Season solo recital, during which his siganture was obtained. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the CD available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Pollini now seldom does public signings, making any signed materials scarce. A rare signed copy thus. One of the greatest living pianists. A fine copy.
