I normally don't care for this artist because of certain liberties he takes but that is just me. He is a very accomplished performer and deservedly well respected. It's just that on Chopin #1 he handles the first movement like no one else. There is a place in that movement where all other performers I've heard sound like they got their fingers tangled up but Mr. Arrau handles it smoothly and beautifully. His is the only one I will have in my collection. Again, my preference since I'm no expert, but if you listen to it I think you'll agree.
