I only recently discovered the magic and majesty of Claudio Arrau through his Beethoven piano sonatas. I realized by the end of Sonata No. 1 that I had never in my life heard such glorious sounds from a piano. Since then, I've purchased everything of his that I can find. So it was with real eagerness that I awaited the arrival of 10 Sonatas for Piano and Violin. A few minutes into the first CD, I decided, with regrets, to return the set for a refund. The sound quality is so bad... imagine a scratchy old LP played with an old needle. There were moments when some of Arrau's warm sound managed to penetrate the static, but both piano and violin sound like a shadow of their potential, despite being played by two of the greatest performers of the 20th century. This record company should have honored these great musicians by remastering this beautiful music before releasing it. What a shame! Unless you are interested in this music for historical purposes only, or have a high tolerance for low sound quality, you might want to purchase this music from another company.
