Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli
Prague Symphony Orchestra
Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli seems to have discovered the consistent, musical touch and weight for every note in the last Beethoven piano concerto and sonata, in this basic classical field. Applied in the French impressionist pieces, the result is the strongest, most colourful, most musical and most poetic Debussy you ever heard from a pianist!
