Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli.

The legendary Italian-born pianist, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, focuses on the music of Beethoven on this excellent CD.

An amazing performance of the Piano Sonata No.31 is followed by a similarly epic reading of the Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 5, accompanied by the Prague Symphony Orchestra led by Vaclav Smetacek.

The CD includes a wonderful bonus – encore performances of the four Images for solo piano by Claude Debussy.

Here for your enjoyment is Mr. Michelangeli in a concert that is more than 90 minutes long, performing the following:

• Beethoven Sonata № 12 op. 26

• Sonata № 11 op. 22

Schubert Sonata A moll D 537

• Brahms 4 ballades op.10
