Performance:   Sonics:
Harboring recordings that have been restored from the original tapes dating from 1941 to 1957, this fourth volume devoted to the art of the Italian pianist Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli is a pure godsend. In a copious program grouping the Chaconne by Bach in a transcription by Busoni, the Sonata for Piano N°3 Op.2 N°3 in C major by Beethoven, the Carnival of Venice Op.26 by Schumann, and the Variations on a Theme by Paganini Op.35 by Brahms, this veritable resurrection offers us the vision of a repertoire “in which the great German composers see themselves restrained, filtered, allowing solidity to appear as the plastic of their architectures more than their wandering,” states Pierre-Emile Barbier. Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli is magnificently represented here, in an SACD that is urgent to procure, all the more so in that it is a limited pressing.
