Notes & Reviews:

  • 3CD set - An impressive collection of Claudio Arrau rareties dating 1929-1951
  • Considered by some a 'philosopher pianist' and blessed with the ability to produce a rich and sonorous sound
  • A gifted and insightful interpreter of the romantic piano literature
  • Claudio Arrau confessed his personal preference for this recording of the Brahms concerto
  • All recordings are newly remastered and in mono sound

BBC Music Magazine
The sheer spark and spontaneity of much of the playing here will be a revelation. Arrau apparently regarded this recording of the Brahms concerto as the finest he ever made, and it unfolds with such fabulous certainty and coherence;, the solo playing often dazzles, the musical mind underpinning it utterly focused, too." The Guardian, 19th December 2013
