Notes & Reviews:

"One of the most organic recordings of the Preludes, Claudio Arrau's grand vision of these pieces-in his hands much more than miniatures -is a veritable colossus. The four Impromptus are no less compelling, especially the dark undercurrents of the F-sharp minor." -Gramophone Magazine
