Product Description & Reviews

Despite the slightly cramped, airless sonics, Claudio Arrau's characteristically warm and ample sonority makes itself felt in these 1956 recordings. The pianist may not scintillate or charm to the extent that Slavic pianists do in these works, yet he uncovers layers of depth and disquiet in the slower Études that others merely prettify. The treacherous extensions in the E- Flat Étude, for instance, are distinctly projected and balanced, rather than strummed. Even if some pieces might benefit from more outward panache, Arrau's spectacularly honest technique enables him to articulate Chopin's sparkling figurations with a liquid legato unaided by the pedal. As always with Arrau, the pianism takes a back seat to music making. --Jed Distler
