Nowadays you can listen to other recordings of this innovative arrangements set, but in 90’s there are a few accessible recordings and among them few are satisfiable. Thus the debut of Nanasakov in 1990 with the complete 53 studies on Chopin’s etudes was a really epoch-making event. The virtual pianist easily surpasses human beings, his technique revealed the real value of the pieces. 20 years after, he re-recorded them with newer technologies.

About Godowsky

As pianist-composer, Godowsky was a restless person in the late 19th to the early 20th century. Although he was a self-taught pianist, only few can be comparable. That’s why he was called “The Pianists’ Pianist” or “King of the pianists”.

His uniqueness of the composition is its very elaborated and complex counterpoints which even those who have small hands can play. Once Rachmaninoff said, “Godowsky is the only musician of this age who has given a real, lasting contribution to the development of the piano”. His innovative and complex fingering made ordinary pianists turn away from his pieces, but recently ambitious pianists play them in concerts or recordings.

Who is Michael Nanasakov?

The first VIRTUAL pianist of the world who plays unplayable, ignored or rarely played pieces. The public profile is “Born in Lithuania, Vitrinus 1955”, but actually Nanasakov is a project with a computer and an automatic playing piano by its producer, Junichi Nanasawa. In 1990, Michael debuted with Godowsky’s the complete 53 studies on Chopin etudes recoding. At the period there’s no satisfying recording of them, so he gained a unique reputation with his “super-human” technique.
