Notes and Editorial Reviews

He may not have shared Rubinstein’s spontaneous, unmediated hotline to Chopin, but the septuagenerian Arrau’s deeplyconsidered nobility nourishes the polished mahogany grain of the Preludes and the Impromptus – a remarkable achievement for a pianist nearing the age of 80.
