Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli: The Complete Warner Recordings [14 CDs]

Notes & Reviews:

If Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (1920-1995) remains an enigmatic figure, the elevated beauty and poetry of his playing – and its superhuman precision – are never in any doubt. This 14-CD collection, which includes three previously unreleased tracks, gathers recordings made between 1939 (the year of Michelangeli’s momentous victory at the Geneva Piano Competition) and 1975. The repertoire, spanning the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, encompasses works by all the composers who defined Michelangeli’s art.

Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli was born in Italy in 1920. He is both a legendary performer - admired for his perfectionism, his immaculate technique and his sense of color and poetry - and a mysterious figure: he was aloof on stage, a very private man and rarely played more than 20 concerts in a season.
