CD Reviews

A must for lovers of Arrau and Debussy
Ryan Morris | Chicago, IL | 06/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This contains a new version of Estampes, Images books I and II, Preludes Book I and II, Suite Bergamasque, Valse Romantique and La Plus que lente-the final disc containig the later items was included in exact form on the final sessions release on Philips. Why the states havent released this, along with his Schumann, is beyond me because these are extraordinary recordings. This is big, dark Debussy. Not hazy like Gieseking nor is it of the pin point stoicism of Michelangli[that is a compliment]. It is kind of a mix of the two, but with a heavy dose of germanic emotionalism. The sound is magnificent, surely one of the best examples of Arrau's tone on any available recording. For those looking to hear these pieces in an intriguing way by one of the century's greatest pianists and musical minds-a mind who didnt stop at the printed page but always delved deep into the composers mind-then you cant go wrong. For Arrau fans-this is an absolute must."
