    Legacy

    Claudio Arrau

    £ 9.99

    Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau (1903–1991) was described at various times as ‘Prince’, ‘Emperor’ and ‘King’ of the keyboard, conveying something of the awe in which he was held. Few artists of any generation prompted such consistent praise, a pianist who embraced virtually every part of the repertoire, including marathon cycles of Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin and Liszt. Both these broadcast recordings are sourced from the original WDR tapes and have been remastered to a very high standard.More details

  2. Claudio Arrau
    Legacy

    Claudio Arrau

    £ 9.99

    The celebrated Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau's (1903-1991) career spanned the evolution of recorded sound from his first acoustic recording in 1921 to the digital era of the 1980s. He made studio recordings of selected Beethoven sonatas for EMI in the 1950s and the complete sonatas for Philips between 1962 and 1966. These three sonatas recorded live in Stockholm in 1960 were at the peak of Arrau's career and are extremely rare and have never been issued before. In comparing live as opposed to studio recordings, Joseph Horowitz has said 'I do not find his (studio recorded) cycle conveys Arrau's full stature as a Beethoven player'. In the later sonatas, Arrau himself alluded to the fact that an improvisatory way was required which was difficult to achieve with the constraints of a recording studio. More details
