The famous music critic Sir Neville Cardus called Claudio Arrau "the complete pianist. He can revel in the keyboard for its own pianistic sake, representing to us the instrument's range and power, but he can also go beyond piano playing as we are led by his art to the secret chambers of the creative imagination." Today we continue our complete cycle of the Beethoven piano sonatas and Claudio Arrau performs No.10 in G Op.14 No.2. This recording is taken from his famed complete cycle of the sonatas recorded in the 1960's, and still regarded by many today as one of the definitive interpretations. Sonata No.10 may be small in scale compared to some of Beethoven's more famous later sonatas, but it is a joyful and invigorating piece that Claudio Arrau performs magnificently.
