The Lost Recordings has rediscovered the master tapes of this double recital in the Berlin radio archives. The label thus offers the world premiere of this Beethoven recital by the great Claudio Arrau, recorded on 12 March 1959 at the Hochschule für Muzik in Berlin. An exceptional document.

When he took the stage at the prestigious Hochschule für Musik in Berlin on 12 March 1959, Claudio Arrau, at the age of 56, was an artist at the height of his fame and in the fullness of his pianistic and intellectual qualities.

Rarely better than in these solitary piano pieces, inextricably intertwining sentimental confession, wandering mystical reverie and constant concern for form, has Beethoven put "on stage and in sound" the common man grappling with his confused feelings, doubts and existential wanderings, transcending with his creative genius the contingencies and limits of his aleatoric condition in order to aim at the sublime and monumental.

THE UNRELEASED BEETHOVEN RECITAL 1959

The story of this discovery

"What emotion it was to find this tape from 1959 in the Berlin radio archives! A titanic recital, in public, entirely devoted to Beethoven - one of Arrau's favorite composers. The vast majority of the Chilean Master's recordings were made when he was already old, this previously unreleased recording gives thanks to an artist then in full control of his talent. The restoration work was very long and I remember that each step further revealed all of Arrau's work on the construction, the rubato and his incredible use of the pedal forte.

Tuning fork

"As always with The Lost Recordings, the sonic restoration is remarkable. Beethoven's 'Appassionata' achieves a blend of darkness and hope, improvisation and absolute control."

"When I play, I'm in ecstasy; that's what I live for"

An unequalled sonic know-how.
