Arrau Recital
Alan R. Omer | Dripping Springs, Tx | 07/22/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I prefer Idel Biret's rendition of the Chopin Sonata but I would also give Arrau's rendition high marks. The playing was a bit more reserved than Biret's. I liked Arrau's approach to the Fantasy in F and I believe it compares favorably to the other versions I own by Rubinstein and Fou Ts'ong. I give the disc a five star rating for the Weber and Mendelsohnn works that aren't often recorded."
The highest achievement!

"Claudio Arrau combines the thorough vision of a serious and intelligent musician with the highest level of virtuoso command of the instrument. The pieces in this CD seem to become the most important pieces on earth when played by him, in beauty, depth, control and understanding of the composers intentions. There is a sense of complete involvement throughout the playing along the magnificent musical expression. Truly a gem!"
