Notes and Editorial Reviews

This is a hybrid Super Audio CD playable on both regular and Super Audio CD players.

"In the surround sound medium, the Preludes (1836-1839) carry a particular resonance of awesome power."

Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition

"Listening to these two ‘old friends’ is a reminder of how great he truly was. I hope to see more Arrau performances re-issued in the future; the sound is truly exceptional. I really enjoyed listening to the CD layer, but have to admit that the real beauty is realized in multi-channel."
