A titan of the keyboard, Claudio Arrau was one of the most revered of 20th-century pianists. This Limited Edition 80-CD set presents his complete Philips and American Decca recordings plus his live recording of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.4 with Leonard Bernstein on DG. Through the best part of the 20th century, every recording of Arrau’s was considered an event. This was much helped by the close and warm, glorious sound the Philips engineers gave him on his records. The set also includes two previously unreleased interviews. LIMITED EDITION.
