Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5 / Claudio Arrau [DVD]

Album Summary

>Beethoven, Ludwig van : Concerto for Piano no 5 "Emperor"
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Claudio Arrau has been playing the piano to great international acclaim for almost eighty years. From Tokyo to Berlin to Paris to New York, he has won the admiration of music-lovers around the world. His return to Chile in 1984 after an absence of 17 years was an event of national importance, ranking with Franz Liszt's return to Hungary. In this program, we'll join Maestro Arrau as he returns to the land of his birth, where we'll hear him perform his signature work, the "Emperor" Concerto.

The performance of the Beethoven "Emperor" Concerto is remarkable in that it offers a view that remained unchanged... The comparatively broad tempos he favors in outer movements, the technique that never falters, and the clarity his playing projects are remarkable, each trait suiting the work well and typical of his three impressive recordings of the piece...
