Notes and Editorial Reviews

The elegant pianist Arrau was especially renowned for his interpretations of the music of Mozart and Beethoven. In this rare appearance on Canadian television, he plays Mozart’s dramatic A minor Sonata, K. 310, coupled with Beethoven’s Sonata No. 32, Op. 111, one of the composer’s most technically and interpretively challenging works. Originally telecast March 5, 1964. Black & White, 58 min. The elegant pianist Arrau was especially renowned for his interpretations of the music of Mozart and Beethoven.
