. . . [the Debussy Préludes] show the artist at his most personal . . . these four selections are stunning . . . [Beethoven]: a grand and noble "Emperor". The Vienna Symphony [plays with finesse and plenty of character] . . . With the solo selections, we find reference-worthy Debussy, some highly personalized Schubert and Chopin, and some very quirky (but also compelling) Schumann. The Brahms is widely accepted among the critical community as one of the best late Michelangeli recordings, and sounds very good . . . technically outstanding and unmistakably personal . . . the best of these recordings continually befuddle, baffle, and inspire, and we should be thankful to Universal for this inexpensive way to acquire them all together.

Une finition pianistique unique au xxe siècle. DG reprend la boite de 2002, en y glissant l'enregistrement de 1964 pour Decca, devenu difficilement trouvable -- "Opus 111" de Beethoven minéral, sonates de Galuppi et Scarlatti brillant telles des gemmes . . . Un pilier de toute discothèque.
