Notes & Reviews:

Pentatone presents in its Remastered Classics series another album where musical titans are at work. No less than Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, generally considered to be one of the greatest pianists of the twentieth century. Alongside Arrau, Belgain violinist Arthur Grumiaux, the most important representative of the Franco-Belgian violin school as well as a truly great violin virtuoso, joined forces in Amsterdam in 1973 to record Beethoven piano and violin sonatas. No composer before Beethoven treated the two instruments as equally as he did in his sonatas for piano and violin. This unprecedented integration is magnificently revealed by Arrau and Grumiaux on this newly remastered multi-channel recording.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, The Netherlands (03/1975).
