"I feel Claudio Arrau is one of the greatest pianists of the 20th or any other century, so I was looking forward to his interpretation of Bach with great anticipation.
His playing is ... well, it's hard for me to hear past the antique quality of the recording. Some of his warmth comes through as well and his expressive playing. But it sounds like he's playing at the other end of a tunnel.
I wish record labels would take the care to re-master these old recordings before releasing them; I can't believe it wouldn't profit them to do so. They would certainly honor the performers and their customers by doing so."
