Claudio Arrau was in his late fifties when he gave these performances, yet he had decades in front of him too. The music of the romantics was in his blood and programmes from 1933/34 reproduced in Joseph Horowitz's book 'Conversations with Arrau' reveal, for example, the Chopin B flat minor Sonata nestling between Beethoven and Ravel - Schumann, Liszt and Schubert all figure largely in those recitals. That the music on this present disc is music close to Arrau's heart is an understatement.
