Claudio Arrau was past his prime when, in the mid-1980s, he offered these final thoughts on the late sonatas, but he was still a sovereign interpreter, with a sense of line and grasp of form few other exponents of this music have possessed in comparable degree.

Happily, Philips provides a recording to match: a stunningly weighty, tactile recording with concert-grand impact, in which one can hear the fingernails, the hammers, the pianist’s very breathing. Arrau has occasional trouble with turns and trills, and sometimes his rhythmic profile gets a little blurred, but the sense of effort is welcome. Rarely has it been easier to sense that these works are indeed mountains.
The only drawback to the offering is that the last three sonatas are on three separate discs. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection Works on This Recording.
