I feel that many pianists ruin the "flow" of the Nocturnes" by the excessive use of rubato. This tenet can be applied to any Chopin work but the Nocturnes exacerbate the issue. It's one of the reasons that I like Rubinstein and Moravec.

Having recently enjoyed the Pollini set, I am curious what you think of it, Holden.

I invite others to listen to this and check out what he does at 3:53.

It's a misjudgement on Pollini's part. He left it in the release so I guess that's what he really wanted.
