Third part of the successful 4-part Signature Performance Series.

Only rarely do musicians win fame as great interpreters of everything they touch. However, the Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau was one such virtuoso. Like his great predecessors Liszt and Busoni, Arrau was renowned for reaching to the stylistic core of every composer he performed.

In this historic recital, filmed during his rapturously received return to Santiago in 1984, Arrau demonstrates profound insights into the music of Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Liszt and Debussy, all of whom were dear to him.

****

“Recorded on home territory in Santiago's Teatro Municipal when Arrau was 81 years young...his velvet, in-depth sonority ravishes the ear, especially in Liszt and Schubert.”
