HASH(0x8b61190c) out of 5 stars Poetic, wistful readings that transform these warhorses 23 Jun. 2012
By Andrew R. Barnard - Published on Amazon.com
The Grieg and Schumann concerti are played together so often that it's easy to pass by yet another recording. All of us know the concerti by now and there's no room left for new ideas, right? Not with Claudio Arrau. Somehow Arrau has the insight to take these works and give us something new that makes us forget we just heard them yesterday. In pieces that easily sound clichéd, there's fascination in every bar.

In another classic recording, Leon Fleisher and George Szell found a kind of whamming power while still staying within the limits of classicism. Arrau's approach seems to be the polar opposite of Fleisher. Instead of hunting for jagged edges, Arrau wants us to hear pure, unrestrained melody. Sir Colin Davis and the Boston Symphony provide wonderful accompaniment, but I sense that it's the pianist who leads the way.

While many--perhaps most--recordings get though both works in less than an hour, Arrau finishes at 66 minutes. Sluggishness is no great accomplishment, but due to Arrau's affectionate phrasing, there's no trace of boredom. Instead we're drawn into a world of dreamy meditation, far away from the cares of life. Excitement isn't a major concern. For most musicians, such an approach would be doomed to failure, but Arrau is overflowing with personality. It's clear that the music is being viewed as completely romantic, due to the consistent fluctuations and rubato. It all sounds natural, though, with no trace of self-consciousness. We find ourselves reminiscing, with moments of remorse on occasion, but this is predominately a sunny, autumnal view. Let's dream about the moments of bliss we achieved long ago in another world.

I can't fully express my enthusiasm for this disc, which brings needed life into music heard so often that it requires special insight to draw attention. I can't believe I'm the first reviewer.

HASH(0x8bdc5ee8) out of 5 stars Grieg & Schumann - A definitive interpretations by Maestro Claudio Arrau 26 Aug. 2014
By Radha Raman Das - Published on Amazon.com

This is the pianistic standard by which all others are set. Maestro Claudio Arrau's performances of the 2 concertos are without a doubt, the absolute best renderings on disc. His interpretations very much displays how they were meant to be heard and played. Ever true to whatever music score he undertakes, Arrau's command of pianist tone and touch is wonderfully displayed in these concertos. Assuredly and without question, Maestro Arrau captures their tonal essence and beauty. The orchestral accompaniment of the Boston Symphony and Sir Colin Davis are an added inspirational pluses! Listen, enjoy, be inspired..... and be moved!
