Notes & Reviews:

Claudio Arrau, the intellectual and profoundly reflective Chilean pianist, was one of the twentieth century's greatest interpreters of Beethoven. It has been said that the best way to enjoy Arrau's records is to imagine yourself there in the concert hall while he is playing. Now, thanks to the Beethovenfest performances presented here, which were filmed in Bonn (1970,1977), it becomes virtually possible to do just that.

Fanfare
Claudio Arrau, a pianist who seems to defy the idea of change in interpretation, always seemed to have one ideal understanding of the music at hand... his best interpretations come in big-boned sonatas such as the "Appassionata"... Arrau also seems to be a bit more energetic and lively in the performances...The Arrau makes a very nice package... recommended...

Journal de MontrTal
A small gift when the sky cover. In two DVDs, a master keyboard, huge, heavy and accurate in all Beethoven. A unique sound and means almost beyond comprehension that we do prefer Gilels and Richter has, that says it all. A must buy at low cost.
