Synopsis

Amazon.com
Claudio Arrau's probing, gestalt-ridden aesthetic is always tuned into Schumann's songful restlessness, yet often at the expense of the composer's fanciful, skittish side. While I prefer Arrau's earlier, more mercurial Carnaval (recorded in 1939 and reissued a gazillion times), his warm, elegant Kinderszenen is worth this disc's mid-price. --Jed Distler

CD Reviews

Arrau's Great Schumann Performances
John Kwok | New York, NY USA | 09/05/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These are warm, aristocratic performances of Schumann's most popular solo piano scores. Claudio Arrau may miss some of Schumann's skittish personality, but I still enjoy his pensive, warm playing. Philips' analogue sound quality is quite impressive. Anyone interested in a splendid introduction to these Schumann works will not be disappointed."
