Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...[Arrau's] rhetorical and expansive statement of the cadenzalike flourish at the beginning of the "Emperor" augurs for a performance that will be more pompous than regal. But it turns out differently, Arrau producing what, to my mind, is his finest Beethoven concerto recording: taut, grand, virtuosic, and forward-pressing, with a beautifully sustained, but never distended, slow movement. In both performances Haitink provides superb support." -Frank, Fanfare
