 Brilliant Pianism and Conducting August 5, 2013 By Robert E. (New York, NY) See All My Reviews "Maestros Arrau and Giulini have combined their glorious talents to produce a sumptuous recording of these two beloved concertos. In my estimation, it sets the bar quite high when ranking a list of the many CDs available." Report Abuse
