 Claudio Arrau Soloist


One gets a fair semblance of Arrau’s artistry through a remarkable cache of recordings made for German Radio in 1937 and 1938. They are released here for the first time, with the exception of the Liszt E Flat concerto, which appeared on a long unavailable Russian Melodya LP and two rare commercially issued Parlophone 78s, added as encores. While Arrau made several important recordings prior to his emigration from Germany, his pre-war discography is small in comparison to his prolific output from the mid-forties on, when the pianist’s international reputation solidified. The present compilation, therefore, adds significantly to what we know of Arrau’s prime years.
