Notes and Editorial Reviews

*** This title is a reissue of a Japanese release with liner notes in Japanese. ***

The first release of Claudio Arrau's 1942 recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations (with all repeats observed) reveals that almost a half century ago, this pianist was an artist of taste and temperament, exploring repertoire that more-celebrated pianists of the time didn't dare touch.
