5.0 out of 5 stars Crystalline Perfection May 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Directly from the cd's booklet:
"...all of us who saw and heard him perform have our indelible memories of this - difficult - , autocratic, arch-perfectionist of the keyboards. ... for Maurizio Pollini, who studied with Michelangeli shortly after his triumph in the 1960 Chopin International Competition on Warsaw, he represented the - absolute peak of piano playing - ... today, dazzled, provoked and unsettled as we listen to this playing wich, backed by a technique "like steel and mercury", sweeps music clean "of the dulling patina of familiarity", we can only marvel at qualities that challenge our preconceptions at every turn, forcing us to reconsider music we knew intimately, even completely."
Get this cd because Michelangeli's live performances are beyond description!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Art of Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli Feb. 10 2009
By Antonia Brentano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (how can you fail as a pianist, with such a name...) only played some Beethoven sonatas in his career. The beautiful, complex, last sonata luckily was one of them. It takes a great master like Michelangeli to play this sonata in such beautiful and convincing way. You'd just wish the second part of the sonata would never end. For me, this is one of the best recordings of this sonata I know.

The Clementi sonata is very well played, but it's just not my cup of tea.

In his career Michelangeli played quite a lot of Scarlatti sonatas (although, Scarlatti wrote about 600...). A collection of 3 beautiful sonatas is included.

The Chopin sonata may raise some eyebrow. Although it has moments of extreme beauty, there are also some less convincing moments. Michelangeli's rubato sometimes seems a bit too studied, even a bit odd. But decide for yourself.

This is a recording of 1959 and 1961. Sound quality as good as can be expected.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scarlatti: 3 Keyboard Sonatas; Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 32; etc. Sept. 11 2011
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Scarlatti: 3 Keyboard Sonatas; Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 32; etc. is a compilation album of two recordings with pianist Michelangeli. The first one being from 1961 and the other from 1959. Both recorded at BBC Studios, Maida Vale, London. Michelangeli is a pianist with talent that only be compared with greats such as Gould and Yves Nat. Bryce Morrison has written music notes which are both informative and well-written. Also included are photographs of Michelangeli from the time of the recordings. Highly recommended indeed. 5/5.
