Synopsis

Product Description
When it comes to the Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, both critics and audiences alike have been generous in the superlatives bestowed upon him: he was known as the "king of pianists" and was even celebrated as a "second Liszt". This compilation features recordings made between 1939 and 1958 and prove Claudio Arrau to be a performer whose playing was both flawless and earnest. Among these admirable recordings are the Chopin "Studies" and Schumann`s "Kreisleriana" and "Carnaval". The recordings of the piano concertos written by Beethoven, Liszt, Chopin, Grieg and Schumann were made with major orchestras - conducted by the leading conductors Otto Klemperer, Fritz Busch and Eugene Ormandy.
