Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
First the downside. This was the last recital by Michelangeli, two years before his death in 1995. It was not recorded professionally (heavens knows why not) and is preserved in an amateur recording here. The sound is not bad considering. Imagine you are towards the back of the concert hall. The sound is a bit distant but focussed and clear without distortion. But the audience coughs quite a lot (some coughs have been edited out). Worse than that you can hear in some passages quite a lot of nearby shuffling of feet or programmes. This is disconcerting but it's worth persevering and listening through it.

It seems fitting to me that for his last public statement Michelangeli chose an all Debussy recital: Children's Corner; Images Books 1 and 2; Preludes Book 1. There is no encore. For many years I regarded M's 1971 Deutsche Grammophon disc of Children's Corner and the Images as his best studio recording and the best available of these works. I found his studio Preludes 1 titanic but a little cool and marmorial. Then later I heard his wonderful 1957 London recital on Testament with four of the Images, and a superb 1987 Debussy recital here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B000F3A9KS/ref=sr_1_32?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1357330299&sr=1-32
which is also available as part of a super-bargain 10 disc set:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Arturo-Benedetti-Michelangeli-10cd-Box/dp/B0009QYPBA/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1357330404&sr=1-1
I would say that all these versions need to be heard because each one sheds new light on M's lifelong journey with Debussy. In front of an audience M allows himself more freedom than in the studio and his playing is all the more personal and intense. There is a deep precise melancholy shot through with sparks of ecstasy. Basically this is phenomenal piano playing.
