A Sunday serenade: Chopin, complete Nocturnes played by Brigitte Engerer

I’ve discovered this today, the best version of the Nocturnes I’ve ever heard. Poor scholar that I am I’d never even heard of Brigitte Engerer, either.
UPDATE Monday: Regular reader Khalid weighs in:

thanks for posting that Sunday…
from Telegraph obit:
So rare were her British appearances that London-based critics would travel to Europe to hear her, with one noting of her performance of Chopin Nocturnes in Spain two years ago that “each drama was on a grand scale, with each note weighted and balanced with fastidious authority”.

Thanks man, and here’s the linko to the obit.
