Notes & Reviews:
Claudio Arrau's reputation is built on his special affinity for the music of Brahms, Schumann, Liszt, Chopin and, above all, Beethoven whose complete sonatas he played in many major cities. Born on February 6, 1903, his performances had all the virtuoso technique required but it was accomplished without the least ostentation; for him the music was what should remain in the audience's ear and should not be disturbed by the flamboyance of the pianist in the audience's eye. Twenty years have passed since he departed but these recordings will bring back happy memories for all those lucky enough ever to have attended his concerts.
